This website documents the way in
which I built my first live steam locomotive. Sections will be added
as time permits.

When approached correctly,
building and operating live steam locomotives can be a safe and enjoyable
hobby. There are many books available in the hobby that can
guide and educate the novice. Check with one or more of the
