Comments: This is one of the clubs old members locos. Shag has past away but recently his sons brought it down to the club for it to hopefully be able to join the clubs rooster. The engine is in need of a little repair but she is a beautiful engine and very unique.

Maybe one day, we tried to pressure test the boiler but the engine has too many plumbing leaks to hold pressure. It would be a nice engine to have cleaned up and running again.

This is not a club loco, it was left at the club by the owners son to have a boiler test. Until alot of time is put into getting the plumbing sealed up it's just one great looking lawn sprinker. Looking at this loco closely you can tell it was built by a vary crafty person as there is some neat ways things where done when building it. It would be great to see this become a club loco, so we at So Cal can get it running and all can enjoy seeing it cleaned up, steamed up, and running.
