Railroad Supply RTR 7 1/2" Gauge American Locomotive and Tender For Sale
Selling a ready to run 1 ½-inch scale 7 ½ -inch gauge Railroad Supply 4-4-0 American Steam Locomotive and Tender. This is a beautiful operating locomotive which would make any live steamer proud to be the new owner.
The locomotive has a copper boiler, spun copper diamond smoke stack, brass domes, safety valves, steam whistle, duplex feed water pump located in the cab, an All-American pressure gauge, crosshead feed water pump, mechanical lubricator, in addition to many other details. The sight glass piping was recently upgraded in order to comply with current GGLS club safety regulations which require the water sight glass to be blown down from either the top or bottom boiler connections. The majority of screws have been replaced with high-strength alloy socket head cap screws. A RRSC headlight kit with mounting brackets and a machined brake set is included for installation by the buyer.
Major portions of the engine and the tender have recently been cleaned to bare metal, primed and painted with oil based enamel paints. Lettering and numbering is left to the new owner to suit their favorite railroad line and preferences.
The tender is fabricated from brass/copper with a brand new single sheet of 16 gauge brass for the tender top. The tender is equipped with the standard RRSC manual feed water pump, a knuckle coupler and motorcycle style folding foot pegs. The Central Pacific style sprung tender trucks are highly detailed and roll on ball bearings.
The copper boiler was tested to 1 ½ times its operating pressure along with a wheel gauge check on 02/05/12 by a GGLS club boiler inspector. The locomotive is coal fired has been run under steam at the GGLS facility on numerous occasions. The last run was on January 6th, 2013 where the locomotive freely ran around the track for a number of hours pulling two adults. The locomotive has Golden Gate Live Steamers (GGLS) boiler tag, No. 325.
A shovel, coal poker, air blower for starting the fire, and bucket of coal are included. A set of drawings are included. The locomotive can easily be converted to propane for those wishing to fire the locomotive on this fuel.
The only reason we are parting with this beautiful locomotive is the fact that we have four other steam locomotives and space is at a premium in our garage machine shop.
Asking $13,400. Can be viewed at the Golden Gate Live Steamers track in Berkeley, CA. Will steam up and demonstrate for buyer on day of sale. Please contact Michael B. Smith at (650) 615-0475 for information.

This locomotive was built by Mr. Terry Taylor in 1972. It features an axel pump and a hand pump. There is also the necessary plumbing for an injector. The locmotive is fired up on a regular basis at the Golden Gate Live Steamers. It holds about 10 gallons of water if I recall correctly. It was weighed in at just about 350 lbs. It has hauled the club public train with a total of 22 passengers on board. I am working on a leak in the dummy slide (actually piston valve) cover. It is the only mechanical issue with the locomotive. I am currently working on the leak, it is an easy fix. On other locomotives this has been fixed by replacing a gasket or just simply tightening loose bolts. The locomotive is very complete with detail. I have had this locomotive for 2 ½ years and it has been an interesting journey through the ups and downs of locomotive ownership. It’s all part of the fun. I am selling my locomotive because I’m ready for a bit of change and I would like someone else to enjoy my locomotive as much as I did! All though people at my club noticed my irritation with the little issues that came along with the locomotive, many of them never noticed my emotional attatchment to my little 0-4-0. I want it to go to a good home and I hope it will bring the joy and educational value that the live steam hobby has to offer!
