Pantographs
« on: December 14, 2018, 04:20:48 PM »
Eyup every one , I recently purchased an EF58 (item No3020-3)I knew the detailing parts were missing also the paper work. I didn't realise how difficult it would be to source the missing bits. So my plea is can anyone email me a copy of the parts list or tell me where if anywhere I could buy said items even just the part No for the pantographs would be a help.
James.

Look like they're just Kato 11-420, widely available, mostly shipping from Japan.

Amazon link from Google.

FWIW sometimes Kato have the parts sheet available for download as a PDF, but evidently not in this case: http://www.katomodels.com/n/ef58_jyoetu/

There is one for 3049: http://www.katomodels.com/n/ef58_h_yoroido/

I was looking online for the exploded parts sheet for a different kato model and likewise struggled to find what I needed, not sure why they are so tough to track down.

If I can find actual copies of mine (various models, US outline), and if it doesnít violate any rules Iíll try to scan and upload some.

Any suggestions for Tomix tram pantograph spares?

The carpet monster ate  a vital part which pinged off as I was assembling the Panto.

Oh no it didnít

Oh yes it did!!

Depends if you want diamond, cross arm or single arm. Google yields many vendors of each type.

Thanks for the reply chaps. Njee20 the panto's you suggested look to have locating pins that go from side to side where as the locating holes on said loco go for and aft .Thanks for your suggestion anyway.

Looks like they vary. Some appear to have the 11-401s, which have a Ďcrossí bracing on the upper linkage. Other models only have a single diagonal cross brace, more like the 11-420.
