7.5 inch gauge live steam American type 4-4-0 locomotive and tender.

Selling for my Grandpa due to the fact he can’t get on it anymore. The locomotive is coal fired but could be easily converted to oil or propane. The boiler was built by Ed Perry which has been building locomotive boilers for our models for close to 40 years. The tubes are 1/2" type K cooper silver soldered into the tube sheets. We did a boiler hydro in 2016 up to 180psi, the safeties are set for 120psi. The locomotive was only run once then laid up and blown out. The locomotive is in like new condition.

Hello Cheryl,


My name is Jan Sanderson, and my husband, Jim Sanderson was a member of the Kitsap Live Steamers until his death in July 2010.  I am writing to you as I have some books and Jim's collection of professionally bound magazines that he collected over the years.  I am wondering if any of your members might be interested in any of these as they are quite beautiful.  They are as follows:

Modeltec Volume 6 (May 1989 - April 1990) through Volume 17 (May 200 - April 2001) - a total of 12 volumes

Live Steam Volume 13 (1979) through Volume 43 (2009) - a total of 32 volumes

Grand Scales Quarterly Volume No. 1-12 (July 1997 - July 2000) and Volume No. 13-24 (October 2000 - 2003)

The Steam Locomotive Study Course - Volumes 1-4


I have checked with Powell's Bookstore and they said that each volume would be worth about $20.00 each, but I would be happy to sell them for $10.00 a volume if anyone is interested.  Would it be possible if I offered these through your OrderBoard newsletter?  I am attaching a few photos.


Thank you for your assistance in this matter.


Sincerely, Jan Sanderson
