You can be on the rails in steam for only $5000/offer. I am offering my complete , RTR train consisting of a 7.5" gauge INVICTA locomotive, tender, engineer riding car, and tool car . Loco has a propane fired steel boiler with copper tubes, axle driven feed pump backed up by a hand pump in the tender as well as a axle driven mechanical lubricator. Slip eccentrics for forward/reverse. The engine is a twin cylinder double acting wth a bore and stroke of 1"x 2.2" The tender water capacity is limited to 1 gallon so I built a 3 gallon water tank in the engineer's riding car along with an electric pump and battery to transfer water to the tender on the fly. There are hand operated mechanical brakes on the engineer's riding car. A 110 VAC blower for firing up is included along with tools to change out the propane tank, lubrication bottles, foot peg bar for tool car and misc fittings.

Contact Bill Cody at 775-674-6512, cell 775-233-1429 or email tosteamboatbill@sbcglobal.net
Engine is located in Reno, Nevada and can be delivered for a fee.

7 1/2" Gauge steam locomotive 1/8th scale British Rail Standard Class 4 steam locomotive.

steam engine

This model is coal fired and most of the major components are complete. No superstructure or side tanks have been started yet, however many of the cabin dials and controls are complete including a rather clever opto-electric speedometer. The Locomotive and its valve gear has been run successfully with compressed air but no steam has been put through it. Included with the parts shown are some bogie castings for the tender or driver carriage and some sheet brass for the water fabrication.

The boiler was made by a licensed boiler maker in Bristol, England, www.kingswoodboilers.co.uk, serial # KB08002.

The oil burner had been removed and coal grates have been put in to return the locomotive to its "as built" condition.
The locomotive has been re-timed and has much more power now.
A complete mechanical review has been done to ensure everything is in proper order for a good sale.

*Photos taken two weeks before the larger oil tank was installed & the whole thing repainted and numbers added (#99)

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!
