For Sale:  7.5" ga. Conner Beam Engine

 Reduced to $5,750



click images

Long time Mid-South Live Steamer member Bill Conner built over 60 steam powered Beam Engines before he passed away in 2014. We are now selling the #16 Beam Engine built in the 0-4-0 series. This engine was maintained an operated for many years by David Philips and was used to help create the Conner / Philips Drawing Packages. I purchased this engine last year from Mr Philips, but no longer have the space to keep and maintain. As with all Conner Beam engines, the engine outperforms size. The engine requires very little maintenance and is easy to run, which makes it a perfect entry for those wishing to get into a steam powered locomotives.

The engine is fired by propane and can be up and running in about 30 min from a cold start. The engine and tender are being “sold as-is”. The engine runs well as shown in this video shot on November 26, 2016.

The engine has 8 propane burners plus pilot light with independent controls. The boiler has copper flues and is in fantastic shape. The unit also includes a steam lubricator, axel water pump, and a GREAT sounding whistle. The water pump check valve may need to be cleaned as it was sticking during the test run.

The included tender, also being sold as-is, was designed specifically for this setup and holds the fiberglass water tank & propane tank. The tender includes a fully operation water hand pump and engineers seat (not shown in video). See more pictures.

As part of this package deal, I will include a CD with the complete drawing set for the Conner 0-4-0 engine. Note: The engine stand shown in the video and pictures is NOT included.

This is an excellent opportunity to own a ready to run Bill Conner Beam Engine and tender at an affordable price!

$7,500. Reduced to $5,750    Local pickup or delivery within 50 miles of Nashville, TN available or I can crate for $200 and ship at the buyer’s expense. .
