What are the boiler dimensions of the various models? 13, 16, 20 HP? Curious on how it compares to other makes.
Clyde, I'm so sorry I was sleeping at the switch. Hopefully the train didn't go off of the track. This 40-140 is a late one, Clyde, with a Titusville Iron Works boiler 1/2" butt strap boiler. They also had a special order 5/8" outer wrapper boiler at this time. The only later configuration than this one is the Smolik's 40-140 #6867 with the "goose neck steam line." The reason for that steam line was because a nipple broke on a main steam line on one of the engines somewhere, sometime, and this was the fix for heat expansion in that case. Smolik's 1912 engine is the ONLY 40 I've ever seen with that line. There may have been others later, but I've not seen photos of any.Gary will correct me if I'm wrong but I think it is one of the earlier big girls 40-120. G. Willikers do you suppose the number of posts correlates to the quality of the machinery. Or does it just seem that way.
Until we hear differently. A firm decision is supposed to be announced by the 1st of June.Is that show still on? Most around here have canceled so far. Got a flyer today for our group and it also had a note that it was only tentative as the state is still on lock down for a good while yet.
