for a fistful of dollars
« on: July 14, 2022, 03:47:10 pm »
This was my second catch from last weekend -
I promise I didn't want to buy it - but the price was too tempting!
It is a Stuart Mill steam engine with Stuart boiler No. 504 plus a second engine constructed by a talented modeler. In addition, there was also a started Mill and a few copper pipes.
All together it cost just US$ 220
What to do with it?
I already made some cleaning and steam test. Both are good runners..
Arnold ;D

Wow Arnold, that 504 and S-50 Stuart combo is the Bee's Knees of a deuce set-up. Heck, I've seen the S-50 alone go for more than you paid for the entire haul! What a wonderful bargain of a bunch of really fine equipment. You will grow to truly love that 504 boiler, if you don't already, and will find that there is very little in our model world that it won't power perfectly!!!

BTW, that other engine looks extra nice too!

Well done that  ;c)

  Probably the single best steal of a deal I have ever seen for any model steam sale! Let me know if you want to sell the 504 (but I am guessing you won't). I have stuff to trade.
