Adjustable drive shaft stands will simplify shaft alignment.
Steel construction with an Acme threaded shaft and bronze adjusting nut make alignment easy. No more wiring, wood block, and back strains trying to get the correct angle for bolting in the Drive Shaft.
This platform offers safe access to locomotives when spotted in an otherwise inaccessible area. One platform can be rolled down the track to meet the unit where spotted. Large casters roll easily and bumper rollers keep it on track.
These pegboard panels are mounted on the ends of pallet racks or metals racks for easy access in Material Supply areas. We can pre-punch the mounting holes to mount directly into your existing racks. The 12 gauge pegboard will provide a durable mounting surface to secure your parts.
We also offer heavy duty pegboard holders that are heavy duty above and beyond anything else available in the marketplace. Our pegboard tool cabinets, pegboard panels, and pegboard holders are becoming the Industry Standard in the Heavy Industrial Sectors.

We perform a wide variety of fabrication jobs here at Blue Steel. The only regret I have about this one is that we did not document it very well and take a lot more photos.
An old crusty locomotive bell was given to us to restore and mount. There was no desire for it to ring as it would only be sitting atop a granite monument with the bronze plaques with the names of workers at this facility. In addition, the clapper was missing so we would have to fashion one from metal. We had 2 specific goals, it needed to be shiny and it needed to be secure. These old brass bells are a hot item to sell online!
After a trip to the polisher, it received a clear coat to prevent it from tarnishing. We built a powder coated steel cradle that would bolt through the metal frame of the monument. Under the bell-shaped finial is a locking pin that secured the bell to the frame. As you can tell from the photos I kept the bell at my home until we delivered it. Something this shiny draws a lot of attention.
We are always looking for better ways to keep workers safe. As new products are developed I’m always sketching and drawing concepts on my tablets at home for future reference. Recently I came home to a new concept from my 5-year-old Granddaughter for a Blue Flag. As you can tell she is very loving and thought hearts would make a good addition to SAFETY FIRST!! I agree, after all, it’s all about making sure we all go home safe to our family every day. I hope we all teach them while they are young to work safely.
This Stainless Steel pull handle is truly an Emergency Pull handle since if your black or grey tank is full, and the Plastic Pull Handle Breaks, you have and emergency on your hands.
The hook end is fashioned to hook on the existing stop nut on the metal shaft that is still present when the plastic T Handle has broken off. We have made these for the Locomotive Service Crews for years. It’s also a great item to keep in your RV for the “just in case” day comes when you’re traveling and the handle breaks.
