4-4-0 Steamer

Yes I went and picked up a steam engine.


I went and looked at it in July.

It has no power.


Pick it up and bring it to the loading area. Load it up and take it home in November.

I took apart the tender and rebuilt it.


Next take the Engine apart.


Many hours later the frame was bare.

Time to make parts.

It had a tin boiler. Found a pipe. Cut the pipe to size. Marked on the pipe for the rivets.

There was no suspension on the engine.

The motors came in so I set them in place to see how they fit.

It’s been five weeks and I have other projects I have to get done so I’m going to stop here.
