many railroaders, Remote Controlled Locomotives (RCLs) are
becoming a common site around the country. Our new set of numerous
RCL Antenna Stands will make your modern switching fleet stand out!
set is etched in .006" brass for scale fidelity, durability,
and it premium paint surface. Included in this set are four of
the most common remote controlled locomotive antenna stand styles.
This product also features a drill template for styles A and B.
A. Large Flat Top Stand: This stand is mounted on the angled portion
of the locomotives cab roof. Note that the antenna stand top may
be mounted at the roof height or just above the roof height; our
drilling jig is equipped for both styles.
B. Narrow, Long Stand: Used on many odd-ball switchers such as
SW1500s, SD9s, and more, this narrow stand mounts
where the cab roof angles down on either side of the cab.
C. Square Stand (two sides): Mounted in the same location as stand
B, this small stand has only one side and top. Like antenna stand
B, this product mounts flush with the roofline.
D. Square Stand (three sides): Mounted like C, this stand extends
above the roofline and utilizes three sides.
The antenna foundations for styles A and B are located in the
bottom center of the fret (between the As). Locate prototype
photos for exact placement of these stands.
Bend the sides of the provided drill template so they match
the angle of your cabs roofline. The large F on the
template indicates the front.
The drill template works for antenna styles A & B only.
Note that style A has two sets of holes near the edge of both
sides. If you are mounting the style A at the roofline height,
remove the inside (short) legs and only drill the two outermost
holes; drill the top holes (located next to the As) and
the second to the outermost holes for a stand that sits above
Drill holes using a #80 drill (enlarge hole if necessary)
and secure the stands with CA glue.
