O SCALE ITEMS FOR SALE

These web pages list the O scale items that Rod Miller has for sale.

Note that any parts shown below are those that are that have come into my posession as part of operating my business, and that are not something for which I want to provide an ongoing supply; e.g., they are excess. I also have ongoing stock in parts that have been developed for my business and that I offer for sale; you can see them at this page.

Please return as from time to time as I will add to this list items from my personal collection that no longer fit my personal modeling interests, and items from my business operations that I find to be excess.

If you buy more than one item I will do my best to combine them in packages in order reduce the shipping cost.

LOCOMOTIVES

PFM Denver & Salt Lake 2-6-6-0 Custom Painted D&RGW

I always liked these locos, and when I got the chance to purchase Dr. Richard Miller's model, I jumped on it.

It appears to have PFM sound which is a reasonable conclusion since Dr. Miller had PFM sound on his layout. The headight and backup light work and are directional when run on DC. With DC there is no sound because a PFM sound unit is required for that. The good news about this is that conversion to DCC sound is a little simpler because constant directional 1.5V lights are installed. There is a crew in cab. The weathering was carefully and excellently blended together and there are no chips in the paint - see the photos. The photos were taken before the right side air pump filter was re-installed by soldering along with correcting its piping. If you are considering buying one of these models, check the filter casting to be sure it hasn't been broken off - it projects out beyond the running board and therefore is vulnerable.

There are no loose parts. There is a KD coupler on the tender in place of the dummy coupler that came on the model when new.

These models came with the raised numbers that were applied to the cab when the locos were owned by the D&SL at which time they were numbered 200 - 216. Some of the numbers that came with the model when it was new are missing, but the numbers that are included can be used to make up every loco number except for 200, 211, and 212. See the last photo below. [These number sets are available and can be turned up with an on-line inquiry.]

It runs quietly and smoothly, slow but so were the real ones. Original box with packing in good condition, but this box is not suitable for shipping the loco; contact me to discuss shipping. An alternative to shipping it is to pick it up at O Scale West in May 2021, contact me so we can discuss. Shipping the empty original box could be expensive because of its size- 20" x 16" x 5".

I discovered a running problem that was traced to a loose idler gear screw in the rear engine gearbox. The screw and mount were improperly designed. I fabricated and installed a permanent fix.

$2000 plus shipping. CA sales tax will be added if the loco is delivered to or shipped to an address in California.

Additional photos will be provided by request, but the following photos are representative of the model. Note the headlight in the top photo.

Set of AtlasO ABBA D&RGW "Bumblebee" Shells, 1/16" Sheet Brass Frames Are Available

This is a set of AtlasO factory painted F unit shells. They are in new condition, and have had sheet metal brass frames fitted to them which I suppose technically means they are used. The A units have unique numbers; the B units aren't numbered. One A has the large side number boards that were used by the D&RGW at one time; the boards are glued on and since one came off (and was re-attached with water based glue) it may be possible to remove the other (soak in water to see if it will come loose). Whether paint touchup will be needed if the boards are removed is unknown.

Included are:

  1. 2 A unit shells
  2. 2 B unit shells
  3. fuel tanks for all 4 units
  4. 2 A unit 2-rail pilots with AtlasO couplers
  5. steps for all locations (one A unit rear corner step is broken - replacements are available from AtlasO).
  6. 6 P&D carry irons
  7. 6 KD couplers on AtlasO mounts
  8. P&D F unit frame (not applicable if using the available sheet brass frames)

All parts are AtlasO original and are AtlasO factory painted.

The 6 P&D carry irons include additional detail for the ends and also provide a mount for a coupler. 1 is needed for each A unit and 2 are needed for each B unit for a total of 6.

NOTE! Shown in the photos are 1/16" sheet brass frames that have been fitted to the units. THESE ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH THE SHELLS - THEY ARE AVAILABLE FOR SEPARATE SALE - SEE BELOW - AND CAN BE ADDED TO YOUR PURCHASE.

From what I know about the drive options that are available, my first choice for putting a drive in these units would be to start with the P&D GP-9 drive, primarily because it is designed for a lower floor height than that in the P&D F units. I recommend you discuss this with P&D before making any purchases.

Of course your other option with these shells is to swap out shells with other Atlas0 F units if you want a set decorated in the scheme.

The price for all 4 shells including all the parts shown in the photos is $400 plus S&H. CA sales tax will be added if the shells are delivered to or shipped to a location in CA.

S&H can be estimated if you provide your zip code. If you choose to include the frames (listed below) in your purchase, I need to know that. Note that in the interest of preventing shipping damage, the frames if purchased will be shipped separately from the shells.

Here is the 552A A unit

The below image shows the 552A with the floor installed and after the floor was modified to accommodate the custom drive from one of the now sold All-Nation units. While the frame has been modified it is still possible to adapt the drive of your choice to it.

Here is the 553D A unit.

Here is one of the B units. The second B unit is identical to the below model except that all steps on it are black where on the below model some steps are silver.

Here are the KD couplers on AtlasO mounts.

Here are the P&D parts. The part number for the carry irons is 5054. The long part is a P&D F unit frame which is not needed if a drive is installed on these frames.

1/16" Sheet Brass Frames For AtlasO F Units.

As shown in the photos above, this is a set of 1/16" thick brass frames that have been fitted to AtlasO F unit shells. Holes are located and drilled and tapped if appropriate for the installation of the pilot, fuel tank, side steps, and coupler.

Price for all four frames is $100 plus S&H. CA sales tax will be added if the frames are delivered to or shipped to a location in CA. Please see the note above regarding shipping if you are also purchasing the AtlasO F unit shells.

Assembled Intermountain, Red Caboose, Pecos River, Petersen Supply Cars
This is my personal stash of cars that were destined for my layout. All are assembled, many by me with extra touches, and were then put in boxes until the day they would have gone onto the layout. So they are in new condition. Most of the Intermountain cars need wheelsets and couplers, that may be the case for others. I'm happy to answer questions about a specific car. Too many for photos, so I made a .pdf list of the cars that I will modify as things change.
