Default 1/3 scale Case

My early Christmas present followed me home! I use to onwn this little engine 25 + years ago and within the last two weeks was able to purchase it and bring it back home...

My old steam engine "buddy" (John Sanger, who passed away in 1994) use to own it and he and a couple of other guys built it and then I did alot of work to it after I bought it. (Including building the front end and wheels, different smokestack, lugs on the rear wheels, ect.

I plan to do a little more work to it and then repaint it in the spring. Very glad to have it home! (So much more easy to deal with than a full sized one).

I've been bad on purpose to try and get some coal. Hopefully, it works. Nice looking scale.

Casemaker,

I think its going to be a while, but Ill keep you in mind. thanks...

Its just shy of 5 feet to the top of the stack, and right at 8'-6" long.
Weight is 1500 lbs dry, and measures out to about 37% of full size.

Robert,

What are the bull gears out of? Sure looks like a nice model. Glad to hear you are planning to keep this one around for a while. Enjoy your new toy...again!

Lawrence,

I really dont know what those gears are out of, perhaps an A or G, JD. However I have seen them at Abilene tractor salvage down in Kansas.

Lawrence, this 1/3 scale is the reason I didnt buy the one your little CP owns. It is far easier for me to run verses a full size one, and now I really dont have a place to keep a big one since Ive sold my shop and equiptment.
I think things worked out well for everyone!

I plan to put some cross braces in the rear wheels, redo the counter shaft trunion location and brace, build a new quadrant shelf, and try and build a pump for it. Then paint and decals.

Thanks for the comments!

Robert M.

Robert,
you know and I know that after you do all of that tuning and tweaking on this little jewel.....your gonna get bored..... so you will need a different project and the first thing you know.... you will start acquiring a lathe here and a bargin of a milling machine there...... this is gonna happen...not a question of if ......but a question of when ? Sooo what castings do you want first ? Wheels... enginebed, or steam cyl ? This sickness starts out with the virus "Tweakness" and soon develops into the full blown "Buildus" - of which there is only one cure. Keep us posted (pictures) with your progress on your tweaking.
