# The diesel roster/history states that the Monashee Pacific purchased ALCO S-2 switchers during the second world war when it was unable to buy additional new or used 0-8-0s.

Bowser, the owner of Cary, no longer offers its boilers drilled and tapped for mounting on Bowser mechanisms only Mantua's. Part of the reason for specifying the boiler/mechanism combinations are to make the construction of 'Monashee Pacific' steam reasonably priced for most of us. Other manufacturers USRA types can be substituted but may not perform as well (Life Like 2-8-2/4-6-2) or have deep flanges (AHM/Rivarossi).

Standard Monashee Pacific Appliances

Most of the appliances specified are the cast steel versions manufactured by the Commonwealth Steel Castings company because all such are available as separate parts. It is desirable to foster a 'family resemblance' between all the Monashee Pacific steam power, and also to eliminate the impression that all the steam engines are stock 'out of the box' kits exactly the same every other one ever built from that kit.
