Dean,
Bruce's Invicta was built in the mid 1950s and was completed in time to run at the 1960 BLS meet at LALS. Bruce up scaled the prints from England for the 3 1/2" gage version + extra engineering for his version. Somebody in the mid west built a group of Invictas from their own plans. They may still be in business or can be contacted. I don't remember if Bruce ever had a full set of prints for his engine. You have every thing that we found in his condo after he passed.

The only items that came with the locomotive were a number of patterns and the set of LBSC drawings with a few notes. I have a lead on the drawings and should have them in a couple of days. Sure would like to have the drawings for the valve gear and Bruce got away from the slip eccentrics that are shown on the drawings.
