Fisher Detail Foundry

Welcome!

This website represents the efforts of the late Larry Fisher and is the result of the enthusiastic support of Jeff Tolan.  The primary medium for production is 3D printing, Sand, and Investment Casting. We believe that combining new technology with historic artifacts and modeling can help bring our hobby into the modern age.  Our products are of high quality and will make great additions to any locomotive.  Most of these parts are details for our 2.5″ scale Chloe based locomotives; but we found there is a wider interest in modeling 19th and early 20th Century railroading. For this reason we have produced parts in 1.5″/1.6″, 2.5″, 3.75″ scale and even full size for historic reproductions. This site was created to offer our designs in the spirit of continuing the hobby.

All of our products are available upon request in detailed colored plastic for test fitting and light use.  Plastic is significantly less expensive, but less conducive to the heat requirements of steam locomotive use.  We suggest that you order plastic parts primarily for test fitting or to evaluate a design, not for permanent use. All other products are offered in cast bronze or brass, and sintered stainless steel.

We are also willing to create customized parts for your locomotive of any size.  Feel free to email us at jeff@fisherdetailfoundry.com for pricing and any questions.

Enjoy!

  1. I would like to discuss the production of a Westinghouse 1872 style air pump for a Disney American Jack Bodenman is building. I have a complete set if drawings so the profiles are avaiable. This to be done in 1.5″ scale. Thanks

      1. I am leading Jack down this path. His suggestion is a operating 8.5″ water pump, bit it will not look correct. How can I send you a photo of the current build? The drawings I have are of the O’Connor pump for the park service, which I got the rights too when he retired. George

      2. Would Jack be machining this pump as an operating model? Or are you more interested in having a scale replica that is more of an accurate depiction of the pump on the Disney engine?
