Re: Are there any individual projects out there?

There is one that I know of. That is Dave Kloke's "Leviathan", in Elgin Illinois. Dave has already completed his locomotive, has run it, and it is drop dead gorgeous. He is now building a second one, the "York." Both are 4-4-0s patterened on the locomotives at Promontory, which were Schnectedy Locomotives. They are are standard gauge. (nobody is perfect) Also, even though the Leviathan looks like it burns wood, it actually burns oil. I've had quite a few discussions with Dave while he was building his locomotive, but while he loves the look of the wood burners, I guess he hates throwing wood.

Here in Las Vegas, I know of one guy, Jesse Banning, who is scratch building a live steam wood burning scale model of Eureka. I'm not sure of the gauge, but I would guess the track size is about 7 inches or so. It's a pretty good size, and he is right on the money as far as it looking just like Eureka. I'm really impressed with what these scale guys build from scratch.

With the original artifacts being far and few between, it seems that building new locomotives is an alternative to trying to find old artifacts, which are not around in any quantities any more.
