American 4-4-0 Live Steam/Steam Engine/Locomotive 5" Gauge:
$2,027

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 photos.

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.
