    COOL,
    That's an old 15" gauge Cagney.
    One of my dad's friends had one. He would steam it up every Sunday and give rides to anyone that showed up.
    Since my dad would run the locomotive on occasion, my brothers and I were fortunate enough to ride on the tender with him and eventually learned to run it ourselves.

    Sure I'd like to see them.
    I have a photo of the one we ran, I'll have to dig it up and scan it.

    I didn't realize there were others here into live steaming!


    I'm a member of the Largo Central Railroad, a 7 1/2" gauge, 1 1/2 scale railroad located in Largo Central Park, in Largo, Florida. We have 1.4 miles of track with tunnels and bridges galore.

    Since it's so big, here's a link to a thread over on railfan.net with plenty of pics. Go to http://forums.railfan.net/forums.cgi?board=GardenRails&action=display&num=1105783001...

    In case you're wondering, I'm ATSF_railfan over there...;)

    It's a great railroad. I'm officially addicted to live steaming, and I have been for almost 2 years now.

    Great way to spend your time.

    :D
