Background info: Previous owner, Ken
Wallis, my stepfather. Designer of STP-Paxton Turbocar, 1967
Indianapolis 500, driven by Parnelli Jones for team Granatelli.
First turbine-powered racecar.
Great condition. Needs some paint and finishing touches but it
runs great. Never fired. Only compressed air. Sold with very
detailed 36 page technical publication and schematics.
Tremendous detail on everything including construction and
operation in the publication.
Everything on the locomotive and tender was well maintained and
operational. Like new - never fired. My stepfather was an
engineer for decades and took great care to keep it running, and
having rebuilt cars with him for many years, I know how
meticulous he was regarding mechanics. I saw him operate it on
his property with compressed air, and since then the locomotive
has been carefully secured and stored for the past several
years. I don't know how to run it so it hasn't been "flipped on"
since it was stored.
My stepfather ran a series of tests when he purchased the
locomotive, including pressure tests. He spent nearly 2k on a
hydro pressure testing device just for that purpose. Operating
pressure 80psi. Tested to 160psi. Not run or tested in several
The train and components appears to be a mix of steel and iron,
maybe some copper. Not entirely sure. What I can say is that the
locomotive is heavy. Approximately 150lbs.
Valve gear, boiler, buffer beams, safety valves, water gauge,
running boards, trimmings, break gear and valve, and on and on.
A complete locomotive.
