Re: Some live steam material I bought at a local auction

These castings are indeed from Fred Bohn. I have a letter dated 9/27/71. From Fred to Leo Meyer.

I'm sure the boiler was made at Monsanto maintaince shop. The boiler blue prints are printed with Monsanto logos on them.

These 999 castings and boiler have a pending sale.

Re: Is this electric motor good for a switcher?

I gave the self propelled sweeper to my brother in law to scrap. I was trying to save the motor.

Is this electric motor good for a switcher?

I have self propelled sweeper that has an massive 24 volt motor and was wondering if it would make a good electric switcher. It is chain driven. Also

Here is a photo.

Re: REDUCED $2,000 how low will it go 4-4-0- 999 Locomotive

Ok I was asked about the bore and stroke of the of the cylinders. I have know idea but I did take some photos. I think it is 2 inch bore. And the length of the cylinder is 4 3/8. Which I don't now what the stroke would be. Reduced to $1,800. There is 13 small wheels. Even though the photo shows 11.
