I use 3" to 5" buffing wheels with compound on a regular power drill. The Barkeepers Friend is a good tip - thanks.I used a buffing wheel on a dremel tool with compound, then used barkeepers friend to get buffing compound off.
The brass railing was also done with the dremel and compound. Then I used Q tips with barkeepers friend on them to shine and remove compound. I am thinking about spraying with clear to keep the railing from tarnishing.
The spacing on the Lionel is separated a little because there were two rivets ( fake rivets) what would not let the slide on decals lay down.
Should I read that as "your two 610's with rivets also are stamped with lettering"?Millstonemike,
The 607's and 608 that I have no rivet at the top.
The other two 610's have rivets and the 612 does not, but do have the stamped (The Lionel line.)
