Finally after 10 years
« on: May 31, 2020, 03:31:00 pm »


Bought this from a local steam club.   It had been damaged in transit but not that badly.

Broken boiler pipes, bend up whistle ,pressure gauge, and bent governor that was also loose.

Great engine and worth the work to rebuild.
This is exactly what I like best - you can make
a restoration in your own style. Enjoy....

You are going to need to build a separate building for this one.

You are playing with the big boys now.

I can't wait to see it under steam!

Amazing addition to your steam collection Al.

Down-sizing house and collection so getting this engine ready to sell.

I"ll be moving south and they don't have basements.
