Live Steam Locomotive

A hand made live-steam Locomotive, of the American type (4-4-0) as typified at the turn of last century. Beautifully crafted it is designed to run on 4 ¾” guage track, making the engine to the scale of one inch to the foot scale (1:12 scale). It burns Alcohol and can generate 25 lbs of pressure in its brass-sheathed boiler.

It is lettered for the NC&StL Railway and numbered 106 and bears a strikingly accurate resemblance to NC&StL class D5 of the same number.

Cowan Railroad Museum is a non-profit 503(c)3 corporation chartered in the State of Tennessee.
