EMD SW Sill Mounted Handrail Stanchions – $13.95
This is a set of HO Scale handrail stanchions made to fit the EMD SW series engines (SW1,8,9,1200 as well as the NW-2). The stanchions are made out of phosphor bronze making it possible to solder wire to them if so desired. CA also works well for attaching the parts. We recommend using .015″ phosphor bronze wire (available separately) for the handrails. The stanchions are formed by folding the two pieces at the base to create the bolt and mounting plate detail. The pins on the bottom of the stanchion are inserted through the holes in the mounting plate. It is recommended that you attach the mounting plates to the sill of the locomotive with CA first to determine the location of the stanchions. Then, drill the required holes through the mounting plates into the sill. It is then very easy to attach the stanchions to the sill through the mounting plates with CA. The set is for side sill mounted stanchions only. The models front and rear handrail/stanchion assembly should be reused. Follow the photos below as a guide.
Note that the photos below show an Alco S2. This sets installation is identical to that of an EMD engine.
