I think John Kokas makes some good points, But parts like trucks are good to have IF thay are any good. Ira Schreiber also said how-a-bout a spare diesel I think this might be good idea as the two can then be coupled cab-to-cab and plows fitted to the ends for winter snow plow use and that way you would be able to run either way and have enough power to buck bigger drikts without useing one of the steam locos and beating the steam loco up. Just my two cents worth.

I'd be curious to know the heritage of Beaver Brook #1 locomotive.

But I wouldn't want it.

Likewise. Maybe it was a steam tractor or stationary boiler. Those cylinders look like they came off of an steam water pump or similar device.

If he visits here, he is not a poster - there is no account with his name.
