shes sneakin up there a bit. says the reserve has been lowered, but its not met yet. about a day to go, will be interesting to see if the bidding gets out of hand or not. i bet if he advertised it for sale @ his reserve guys would whine and moan and not wanna pay it :shrug:
I believe it is much bigger than a quarter scale...I was thinking half scale??? I will have to go revisit the site to be sure though.
Just went to the add again...You might be right. It looks bigger than it probably is due to the angle of the photo. But now see that it is no taller than the height of the end-gate of the Dodge pick-up in the background.
Wow..someone got a good engine...wonder where it went. Ansel put a lot of hours into that engine and was very proud of it. We spent a lot of time with him while we were building the boiler for it. He even brought it up to our show in Blyth one year
Well i wonder where this fun little toy went. im not sure about 60 grand Robert, but i know when David fie was building his guys were throwing around figures and estimates of 40k to make one. :shrug: i have no idea what he actually figured his cost to be though.
Congradulations 19-65 Port. I got a call from a good friend of mine telling me of your purchase. I was surprised it sold for that dollar amount but pleased to hear someone in the steam community has it. Congrats again.
