Atlantic 4-4-2 Live Steam Has Sold!
We decided to keep these pages up and running after the sale of this great engine in memory of our Husband, Father, Father in Law and Grandfather. Glen truly had a skill few have in this day and age.
For sale is an Atlantic 442 Engine, matched Tender and Caboose car (Caboose 90% complete). This is an estate sale from my father in law, and is located in Canton OH. He spent most of his life building this beautiful engine and his grand children enjoyed going for rides on it in the 90's when it was campaigned extensively.
The locomotive, tender and Caboose are 1 1/2 inch scale and set up for 7 1/2 inch gauge. The fuel type is coal. There are many intricate details such as the 1.5" scale Mosley Pyle Generator. The non-magnetic SS boiler was SUCESSFULLY hydrostatically tested by the North East Ohio Live Steam Club (NEOLS) boiler test team on April 15, 2016. We also have found many of the blueprints that were used in the manufacture of this engine and tender which are included.
This engine was featured at the top of page 57 of Live Steam & Outdoor Railroading Magazine Nov/Dec 2008 Volume 42 No. 6.
The sale will include the Live Steam Locomotive, Tender, Caboose car, two steel work stands, steel ramps and the steel crane structure to get the train out of the basement. One of the work stands is complete with ball bearing rollers that allows the engine to run under compressed air pressure in the workshop. Any and all accessories that are still left in the workshop that support the locomotive will be included. (draft fan, coal bucket, etc.)
There are many more pictures available after contact, and we will do our best to answer any questions. We are requesting buyer pick up the train at the Canton OH location. The asking price is $15,999. Offers are appreciated and accepted. Click HERE to send email with questions, etc.
