Hello all :-) I purchased this partial kit about 25 years ago and have done nothing with it. It is time for me to pass it on to an active Live Steam Engineer!

So, I purchased this from an old time Live Steam Locomotive Builder near Washington, New Hampshire. He was going to help me build it when I was younger but life got in the way and I became far too busy to ever move forward with the project. I have now decided that I should move this project out of my basement and allow someone else to enjoy it.

I am selling a Little Engines 0-4-0 rolling chassis and it's Copper Boiler as seen in the photos (the Little Engines Catalog is included :-). That is all that I have. I had all of the Blue Prints but they have disappeared and the older gentleman has passed away so I am unable to progress with the project as I know no one else in the hobby.

So please review the photographs and please feel free to write me with any questions. If you would like to speak in person just email me and I will send you my phone number. If you would like more photos please email me and I will happily send them to you :-)

The Locomotives Frame/Chassis measures 33 1/8th inches from Cow Kicker to the end of the frame and the Cylinder Block measures 10 1/8th inches at its widest.
This is a 4 3/4 Gauge Chassis.
The Copper Boiler measures 22" inches long and is 7.5" inches high at the Fire Box. Its diameter measures 6" inches.
This is a 1" inch to 1' foot Scale Engine.
I noticed many Brass parts on this Chassis including the Cow Catcher. You can see many of these in the photos. I did not scrape any additional paint to discern which other parts are brass. This is an older Little Engines Kit so you may know which bits are and are not brass.

I am happy to discuss shipping, there just is not an option during listing to indicate that. You pay the shipping of course :-)

Thank you for your enthusiasm!
