Custom Reproduction Parts of a Steam Locomotive

Modern Manufacturing Solutions for Classic Train Components

When operating historic railroading equipment, you’ll likely find that the antique parts eventually need to be repaired or replaced. This presents a unique challenge. Where do you find parts of a steam locomotive that are over 100 years old?

Well, you either find a needle-in-a-haystack replacement, or you hire someone who can fix broken locomotive parts and build custom ones. That’s where we can help.

We apply both modern technology and period-based practices to deliver tailored solutions for your equipment, never compromising on quality or safety.
