Ashton products were made to last and repair parts were available for almost all of them. Instruction book #17 offered breakdowns and part listings for the various products they manufactured.

In the past when steam trains let off excess steam at a station the noise could be extremely loud. The city of Boston looked into this problem as the complaints mounted up. Ashton Valve came up with a solution that proved very popular with the Train companies. A muffler! Same idea as on automobiles. And the blow back valves actually saved steam that used to be wasted.
