1" scale little
engines 0-4-0 which I acquired in a trade. I'm selling this
engine because I've acquired a much bigger locomotive in 1.5"
scale, there are no 4-3/4 tracks close to me, and I no longer
have the time to finish this one. Comes with Riding Car.

The Bad: This
engine was damaged in shipping to me, which kinked the cab and
broke the front pilot beam (I have the pieces and the coupler).

tubing and many of the joints where the fittings come together

also, the old one's check ball had rusted to it's seat as it did
not have a stainless ball, and the copper tubing going into it
leaked and was cracked. All of this could be fixed over the
The Good: There is no damage
to the boiler or running gear. The boiler is brand new, and is
sound, all threaded bushings are OK. Engine turns over freely,
but I have not run her because of the plumbing issues. The
engine is practically brand new with very little run time. She
was only test steamed once or twice by her builder.
All in all she's not a bad little engine, a few battle scars
but nothing that couldn't be put right over the winter. A
diamond in the rough, so to speak.
She's priced to sell at $3,500 or best reasonable offer, riding car,
blower, and firing irons included. The Lift Table it's sitting
on can be purchased for an additional $200. Located in Albany,
N.Y. Buyer must either pick up the engine, or arrange and pay
for the shipping. I could deliver within a reasonable distance
for an additional fee.
