Long time Mid-South Live Steamer member Bill Conner built over

are now selling the #16 Beam Engine built in the 0-4-0 series.

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

pump and engineers seat (not shown in video). See more
As part of this package deal, I will include a CD with the
