Scale model of the massive #4 Vertical Rail Straightener produced by United Engineering & Foundry Company (later Mesta Machine) circa 1905. A massive HEAVY METAL piece for your layout.
Capacity to straighten any standard "tee" or girder rail.

We love these old school machines with their dangerous exposed gearing and rapidly spinning flywheel. OSHA would never approve!
