East Coast Locomotive Works

Re: Converting a Allen models Chloe 0-4-2 to a 2-4-0

In the old Allen models catalog, I believe there was a picture of a 2-4-0 using Chloe parts, so it can be done.

Station, Road, Steam Stafford locomotive

Has anyone seen one of the StstionRoadSteam 0-4-0 Stafford locomotives running?
Everything I have seen on the web makes it look like a great starter locomotive if someone wants a bolt together kit but I was curious if anyone has actually seen one run?
Thanks

I had the pleasure of meeting Cal at the Nevada State Railroad Museum and to see his fantastic engines. He was a great craftsman and a really nice guy.
