“It has been truly said if anyone has invented a machine with the solid mechanical appeal and satisfaction of a steam locomotive, he hasn’t applied for a patent yet.” (to paraphrase David P Morgan, Editor of Trains Magazine, April 1954 issue). With that as an introduction, this section presents our line of steam locomotives, grouped by family. This grouping makes it easier to see not only the straight engine kit, but also enables the “kit basher” to select the parts they want for there “one-of-a-kind” design. Included in this section is our 4-4-0 American and our 0-4-0 and 2-6-0 family.
