The box on the front of the boiler is the front throttle, per original Yankee Shop castings and drawings. Original designs did not call for a superheater.

I might expect that price for this engine completely assembled in running condition! I think he will be sitting on it for some time before someone bites.

Yea, the funny thing is that he may be the person that pulled it apart figuring he'd get more money for parting it out, which might be true for a South Bend 9" lathe, but not for a locomotive.

Look at the post from Jack B. at this page: http://www.chaski.org/homemachinist/vie ... 0&start=24

Sire looks like the locomotive in question to me.
