S-Scale Sideframes to Fit Stanton Trucks
Sideframe kits are designed to fit Stanton trucks ... attaching to a different truck may require modification.

Stanton trucks must be purchased from NWLS or your favorite dealer ... I only offer sideframe kits.

AAR Type A and B
Each kit is comprised of highly-detailed, grey-tinted urethane castings made from StereoLithography patterns plus injection molded brake lever clevises, wire and (4) #0-48 x 3/8" screws.  These are made-to-order from in-stock molds.

Blomberg "B"
Kit consists of (4) 3D printed sideframes and a sheet of grey-tinted, urethane castings and misc. parts comprised of:  (6) styles of journal boxes/bearing caps (including 2 styles with speed recorders), connecting "yoke" for each end, brake cylinder levers, wire for brake cylinder pistons, injection molded brake cylinder clevises and (4) #0-48 x 3/8" screws).  Add-on journal boxes/bearing caps allow you to model early F-units to GP35s.

$79 per kit (2 truck's worth)

Blomberg "B" Details Sheet
Use this sheet of details to upgrade trucks from other manufacturers.  This is the same sheet included with the sideframes kit.  Refer to image below Blomberg "B" truck.

Kit No. 64-TK-11-Details ... $25 per set

Alco "Blunt"
Kit includes (4) 3D printed sideframes and (4) #0-48 x 3/8" screws.  3D CAD image of pilot model is below.

Kit No. 64-TK-12-SF ... Blunt (8' 0" wheelbase) ... $35 per set
NOTE regarding AAR-B sideframe:

The Stanton truck has a maximum wheelbase of 9 ft, 0 in.; the prototype truck is 9 ft, 4 in.  The kit's sideframe is designed to 9 ft, 2 in. as a compromise.  The 2" difference, regardless of your chosen gearbox, is imperceptible once painted black and assembled.
