Default Fairbanks Morse / Sheffield 39

Anyone have one of these laying around. Trying to find one to complete a motorcar project I am working on at the East Broad Top Rail Road in PA.

Courtney,

Saw that you finally found one!! Runs great too!

Lance and I were talking tonight and were wondering how rare this engine is. Does anyone else out there in Smokstak land have one of these?

Mike

Hi Mike, long time, no see. Been looking for about three years for that engine. Thanks to a fellow stacker from Minnesota(THANKS Leonard) I now have one. As far as being rare I have only seen a few pics of ones in captivity, mostly on this site.
