Description

HTML is disabled for this item description.Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
This locomotive is a scaled version of a Baldwin 2-8-0 that ran on the Switzerland Trail of America west of Boulder Colorado. from the late 1880s until 1919.
It was known as #30 and the original now resides at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden, Colorado.

My father built this in the early 1990s and it was probably last fired about 15 years ago. It has been stored in inside room temperature storage and is coal and water powered. The boiler was tested and approved by the State of Colorado when it was under construction. This is being sold in an estate context. The tender and a scaled D&RGW boxcar are also included. The locomotive is 65 inches from the cowcatcher to the back of the cab. the width is 16 inches at the front cylinders and the height to the top of the cab is 28 inches. Based on those dimensions, it appears to be 2.5" scale.

There is also a stand for the locomotive and the tender and a flat board with rails that was placed in the back of a 1997 Yukon that accommodated the two items side by side.
