This little guy is a 40 ton locomotive once powered by a 2000 cu in LeRoi V8!!! Brother Joe made a deal and had it hauled home. Then over the process of a winter, joe and john engineered a cradle that dropped into where the giant V8 was. On this skid was a Dodge 225 slant 6 with its 3 speed automatic transmission. An adapter to go from the output of the Dodge tranny to the input of where the clutch in the locomotive was. and Voilla!!
How cool is that!! now spend a few summers laying track, then landscaping it into a nice lawn so you don’t see the track, give mr locomotive a caboose to pull around, some grade crossings, with gate, and you have joe’s place. Usually a fresh splash of gas and the engine is always up for a ride.
