Default 3 1/2" Gauge Hudson type Steam Locomotive.

Here are pics of a " Victor Shattock" built steam locomotive in unfinished state..but nearly there. Vic was fundamental in forming the "Golden Gate Live Steamers" and did much to promote the hobby. There are some very interesting YouTube video's of him and his Basement Railroad in Oakland, Ca. He worked for Southern Pacific Railroad.

Here are more detailed pics. Most of these parts and pieces have been fabricated rather than cast. It doesn't match the " Little Engine" version of the 4-6-4.

The boiler is beautifully built of steel and welded construction. Fire Box stays are all fitted (threaded style) but not nutted. Boiler is pretty much done and complete.

The last pics show this Beautifully Built SP style Tender. It is rather ragged with its mangled Hand Rails and small details but remains a lovely thing .

I will probably be trading this locomotive for small antique stationary steam or boilers . Open to trades only. I'll be posting it on Harry's later.

By the way..Boiler is 5" in diameter tapering to 6" on Crown Sheet. Big boiler and built beautifully.
