Steam Locomotives: Wanted and For Sale

Periodically, people ask me if I know of any steam locomotives that are for sale or if I know of someone selling a steam locomotive. I will try to collect some of that information here for you to view. There are often individuals asking the same questions on the Bulletin Board Systems. So, be sure to check there as well if you are either look to buy or sell a steam locomotive.

For Sale

May 2014:
Empire Limestone 2-4-2T #5. It is currently set up to hold about 25 kids and a couple of adults for parades. There are also steps to use when set up as a static display. The bell is loud and the whistle will run on the truck air in parades and there are 4 small nitrogin tanks so the whistle works during static display. The caliope runs of batteries & inverter system or 110V when static. The whistle is operated with a remote control only so that one always has control of the whistle.
