Aster SNCF 141R 2-8-2
$4,300 + post

Here is a classic Aster locomotive. It was assembled from a kit by Don Kroeger of Houston many years ago. I have had it for probably the past 25 years. It is in superb condition and may never have been run. It runs smoothly on air.

The engine runs on alcohol and has an internally fired JvR type-B boiler. It has two, double-acting D-valve cylinders, Walschaerts valve gear controlled from the cab, and a hand pump in the tender. Boiler fittings include throttle, blower, water glass, pressure gauge, blower, and safety valves. The chassis is fully sprung. Full assembly instructions and drawings are included.
