Live Steam

Postby bob turner » Wed Mar 31, 2021 1:48 pm

I was looking for some photos for George Sokol in Tucson - realized I did not have a shot of my Little Engines Northern - 17/64, and I have seen it run on air, before I tried to make it look like an actual Northern, rather than a tractor boiler with a tender running backwards. It is set up for propane, and that strange thing by the tender truck is a hand water pump. Not insulated . . .

Bob, if you recognise this incomplete live-steam Hudson, I’d love to know what it is that has been sitting here in my workshop forever. The construction so far is very well done. Fidelity to a prototype is pretty sketchy.

I’m not really interested in doing anything with it so, if anyone wants it, PM me, trade me something I can use, and its your’s. Grin!

BTW, all the basic tender panels are here, too.

"Offence" is the opiate of the humourless.

Probably scratchbuilt. Has none of the attributes of Little Engines or Neff.

George sent me this strange 4-2-0 that looked like a fugitive from Transylvania. I salvaged the cylinders and backhead, and married them to this ten-wheeler, which will never be run under steam or air, or anything else for that matter. It just seemed like an intriguing project to save the workmanship.

Forgot to post this - here is the backhead. Please tell me I didn't post this here on some other thread?
