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.

Weight with 10 horse-power electric motor, 77,000lbs.  Floor space approx 8 x 8ft.

Speed, 50 strokes per minute when fly-wheel shaft runs 350 revolutions per minute.  Gearing 9-inch face; ratio 7 to 1.  

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

Other items in photos shown for size comparison - Not included.

Scale model is for display and operating model railroad load / modelling and is not a child's toy. Static model only.  No moving parts.   

FRAGILE!

For use by railroad modelers age 14 years minimum.
