A vertical boilered engine from Bing, named “NORA” and can be seen above the firebox door.

A friend/mentor in the full size hobby lost his 3 year old granddaughter Nora this morning after a 21 month battle with brain/spinal cancer, so I’d like to find a decent/original to give him.

So sorry for your friends loss Nick.

And what an awesome idea.

I will be on the lookout for one.  If I had one, it would be in the mail to you today!

I was able to find a Bing Nora for Nick and I hope to get it posted today.

It came from Germany on a Bin.

The flywheel was way out of true.  I fiddled with it this weekend and got it working a little better.

Thank you Arnold.

It was a lucky find at a very reasonable price.

I'll say it was, I've been all over it (.de) twice a day ever since Nick's post.
I'm glad a friendly got it. Good one Charlie.
