For Sale:    7.5" ga. Allen L&N 2-6-0 Mogul   

 click images
 

The owner of this engine has decided to sell and invest in a larger engine due to the grades on our layout. This L&N 2-6-0 is an Allen Mogul and was last steamed on 17 June 2017 and we have it running nicely. It has been cleaned and well maintained every time we steamed it.

Stevenson valve gear is very close to square, much better than when we got it from the previous owner.

Some painting touch up and TLC are needed, and as with all steam locomotives, maintenance and care is important.

Marty Knox made the boiler for this engine and it was hydro tested last year. Steel boiler shell, firebox, and front sheet. Copper tubes. No leaks were visible and the vessel held pressure except for a light bleed off through the throttle. The engine steams extremely well and it is set up for coal.

The engine has an axle pump that will keep water on the boiler when running, a hand pump in the tender, and an injector. The injector works but it is touchy and just needs to be learned. All new gaskets were made and installed in the feedwater lines and connections from the pumps.

A number of improvements have been made on this engine over the last year:

  • The locomotive has received new safety valves from Godshall Machine, 120# and 125#. We have lifted both and found them to be more than ample to reduce pressure. The 125# has only been lifted once during our test, the 120# relieves the boiler by itself under normal conditions.

  • New gaskets on the cylinder heads.

  • New automatic cylinder cocks from Godshall Machine.

  • New battery powered LED lighting system for the cab, headlight, and number boards, and the headlight has rule 17 dimming.

 

 

The engine has steam brakes set up originally as per Allen engineering.

The Allen cast aluminum pony truck has been extensively reworked with additional weight applied to keep it on the track. It is not equalized to the front driver. We have had no problems with it, but care must be taken through some spring switches as some of them the have springs stouter than others. We have had no problems with the pony truck on our layout, but we have our spring switches adjusted for lighter equipment.

Additional lead weight was installed in the sand dome. I think it added about 12# but I cannot remember that for sure.

The tender has new steel rear steps, coupler pocket, coupler, replaced the cast end beam with a fabricated steel end beam, and a stainless steel insert in the cistern for water. Absolutely no more leaks in the old Allen tender assembly.

The engine has a new coupler in the front, this one is cast steel and much better than the brass one that was in the engine before.

A new steel removable coal bunker was made to fit in the bunker.

Air brakes on the tender can be operated from a compressor and tank in a boxcar as we have it set up. The air line runs to a valve on the right forward section of the tender, and from there through the train line to the Tom Bee trucks and brakes. The train line will operate brakes on the train as well.  The air compressor and tank are NOT INCLUDED in this sale but one can be built or bought from Tom Bee.

The Allen drawings are included.

$14,000 for a great little 2-6-0 Mogul.  Shipping crate at cost plus actual shipping costs if the buyer wants it shipped, or it can be picked up at our track in Kentucky.    Contact me.
