Ok, you live steamers, up for
sale is a 5” gauge American 4-4-0 Live Steam Locomotive with minimal surface
rust, which would clean up nicely with little effort. Engine could be converted to 4-3/4” by
reducing length of axils.
I bought it a few years ago
in a non-running state. It was way out
of time. The piston packing had
collapsed due to sitting over the years, so I machined two sets of rings out of
Teflon and new pistons. Also, the engine
does not have a manual tender water pump fitted yet. You would need to supply your own along with
any other changes you may desire. I have
run this engine many times around the track in my yard as you can see in the
As far as the boiler goes,
when I bought the engine the boiler appeared to be very sound with super heater
but one never knows as I did not build it.
I believe the engine dates back to the mid 70’s. As an experienced builder for over thirty
years, I would highly recommend this engine only to an experienced live
steamer. Engine runs great in forward
and reverse. The driver flanges and
pilot truck flanges are in good shape.
This is a great running
little engine; however, due to health issues, I am no longer able to lift and
maneuver the engine.
