    A local school with a tight budget is once again trying to limp through another football field watering season with an ailing Rain Train Model 400. I have cannibalized two of their retired units to help them make it through the summer but I'm out of parts. Does anyone know where I could find another unit or parts new of used for a Nelson Rain Train Model 400?

    The specs said "traveler", so I designed and installed one of those using a Buckner "train";huge p.i.b. They finally got sick of it and had the grounds crew water,by hand, no less. Needless to say, the turf went south.

    Is this a joke or the big break into antiques you've been waiting for?

    No it's not a joke. I'm trying to find a unit just like the one in the picture posted by hoskm01. I only wish the one I'm working on looked that good. Seriously, if you know of a unit please leave some type of contact information so that I may reach you.
