Construction began in Nov. 1998 when the kits arrived. My partner Paul Miller and I decided to start with the tenders. We had many stories about other builders who made beautiful locos and had to wait until the tender was finished or whacked together a crude one, never to be totally finished. We have the frames and trucks done , and purchased two tender kits form LocoParts .
The frames were purchased from Bob Holder at Rogers-Cooke Locomotive.
The Spring Rigging is complete.
The Valve Gear is about half done.
The Cylinders and Smoke Box Saddle were farmed out to a friend who has a CNC Mill in his basement shop.
Started the Brake Rigging .
Updates to this page will be made when I have time. Progress continues, but life is busy right now. Please email if you have any questions or comments.
Thanks for stopping by.
