Aristocraft Mikado running in Portland

Live steam run at Staver’s in Portland

Heavily modified Mikado, runs on propane in any weather !!


Thanks for sharing Manfred. Those engines are definitely just the thing to tinker with. I received one a few years ago and made a few cosmetic changes. The factory gas set up was innovative in design but not the greatest success in practice. I ended up bypassing the regulator to make the system a little more workable. Mine’s currently for sale if anyone was interested in picking up one. It runs nicely as-is but its calling out for more improvements.

There’s at least one Aristocraft live steam Mikado in the Peter K estate sale on MLS. I think they want $595 for it.
