7.5" ga. #1501 4-8-4 Lackawanna Northern built by Bill Betts in 1999 from original Lackawanna plans. Currently being run on compressed air for turn key operation. This Locomotive is part of an estate that the previous owner enjoyed regularly running on private layout.

Consist includes Loco, Tender, Gondola, and Compressor Car. Can be converted back to coal firing by removing compressed air piping that connects to throttle valve in smoke box.

Controls have been extended to rear of tender to allow operation from gondola riding car. Extended controls can be easily removed if desire to operate on coal from tender. Center drivers have been blinded to help negotiate tighter radius corners.

Compressor Car contains new turn key start gas engine turning twin piston compressor. While running on compressed air engine is oiled with an exhaust scavenger system to collect excess oil.

Locomotive can be loaded onto trailer or rear of truck from loading ramp. Delivery is also an option for direct costs as estate still has cargo van with built-in rails for easy secure transport.
