      I'm having a hard time see the pic of said engine..

      Here you go, and a few extras.

      So which one is Rics ?

      None - his is in pieces, he says.

      26 inches to top of boiler

      36 inches to top of stack

      .

      And here I thought that size didn't matter?  (Although you might qualify as a human tripod with those measurements)

      Of the loco, you bet, Fred.

      I was already there and the place is cleaned out .  However note his topic, he is having trouble trying to figure out scale. Besides like Pete said "Ric's unit is in pieces anyway". Guess he must have pissed off Jan.

      As Ric posted on 4/10

      The engine has been in a great deal of disassembly over the last couple of months, so pictures are hardly worth showing.  I'm currently getting it reassembled and within the next couple of days, I'll try to get a picture posted.

      Long time since I posted pictures and only got this far with Ken's and AndyC's help.  This should be the Tram's Port (left) side.  For some reason the picture is upside down.  Can one of you "Confuser Guru's" turn it right side up and get it the right side.  I've got 3 more pictures to post.

      In talking to Ric, I'm pretty sure the gauge is adjustable by sliding the wheels in and out. (But don't quote me on that)

      Here's where he would like to run it: http://www.ridgelivesteamers.org/index.htm
