Re: Casey Jones railroad engine

Do you mean the railroad locomotive that Casey Jones drove?
It was a "10 wheeler" in a 2-8-0 configuration.
The only picture I could find is below (and it ain't much...)
There is a picture that can be opened, even if it does not look like it. Don't know why that is???

Re: Casey Jones railroad engine

Here is a Casey Jones of a different type. Built in 1915 and used as an ambulance.

This Casey Jones is built around what we think is a 1915 CAD. It even has the CAD tranny with drive shaft and rear end. That's a V8 and it's absolutely beautiful.We had no idea that V8s were being built at that time till we opened the center hinged hood the first time.The T is so crude compared to this it's not even in the same ball park. The T had three main bearings and no counter balances on the crank. 1915 was the last real brass year for the T. The thing was that almost anyone could work on a T. A lot of the T was built out of incredibly tough steal.Some of it was forged and heat treated vanadium alloy. But a farmer could work on it and parts were available in places you would wait forever to get a CAD or any other part. In 1915 the CAD was like something out of Star Wars. I've heard of T rod and main bearing being replaced with pork rind and run for weeks. There aren't any pumps on a T and it only had 25hp. The Caseys steering wheel was rigged to the brake rods. So to stop you turn the wheel to crank the brakes down. The rear end is shortened and chain sprockets and chain to the RR wheels make it go. The inside uses the Cadillac seats etc with tuck and roll leather.

Re: Casey Jones railroad engine

I believe there were at least three sizes, 2HP, 6HP and 8HP. Here are some pictures of those I have found on the internet in the past.

My wife's grandpa has a Casey Jones, he's played with it off and on for a few years, the most he's got from it is a shot or two.
He's sold the farm so it needs to find a new home.
If there's any interest let me know.
