Here is a rare opportunity to own your very own model live steam traction engine!! I don’t know the full history of it but i know a little bit of it. I bought it as a project, but i just don’t have the time or space for it right now. The paint is flaking and there is rust on it. I have the cover for the front as well as the water tank and i will try to get pictures of them. The rear tires are not weather checked but do have some damage to some of the nubs. The governor has some issues and does not turn currently. I have not messed with anything in the boiler. It will need hydro tested and recertified to operate it in public. It does however need hydro tested even if not used in the public. That is for your own safety, as well as others around you. The wood decking on the back was rotted so i removed most of it. I have some parts to the cart that the operator rides on, but i don’t have all of it, or the wheels. Here is some of the specs. Last certified by the state of pennsylvania in 1983. 6 feet in total length. Approximately 3″x4″ steam engine (borexstroke). 1 inch penberthy injector. 1/2 inch gardner governor. 5, 1.25×24 inch flu tubes i. Fuel storage tray (for coal). Reversing valveing linkage and selector. Chain driven to both rear wheels.
