Partially complete wood tender & arch-bar trucks,
Aluminum water tank
Painted red on black, with yellow pinstriping.
The tender was not built to LE drawings, and it's simpler than the typical LE tender, but it looks great.
The existing frame had a bad weld and a corner member cracked, so I've taken the body off. It needs a new frame, like that of a simple flat car frame, but I don't have time to do it. The body is made of wood, and it has a hinged cushion seat over the hidden aluminum tank.
This locomotive is a really neat little loco, and it’s about as close to completion as it gets. I have other fish to fry right now. You could have it running in about a week.
It’s in Southern California, and I’ll gladly show it to interested parties. I will be showing it at the Los Angeles Live Steamers Spring Meet, this next weekend.
$8000 takes it.
