Hi Al!

Thanks for your reply to my question regarding repowering a "Tiny Tim" loco. I did contact Larry Sayre some time ago on this project. He sold me an extra driver, but it was a mess (melted spokes, and rolled with a wobble). I sent it back to Larry.
By the way Al, I'm the one who you sold 20 pairs of brass Kemtron TT trucks to. I still have them and have plans for them since, despite being too wide (truck frames) for "purist" purposes, they do look nice and roll very, very well.

That does look like a nice one and it has been ugraded to a can motor but the price seems a little high to me.

I would check with John Harmon or Larry Sayre to see if either of them has one to sell.

Thanks, Rob, but I do not want to buy 0-4-0 steamer; I love big steam locomotives.
I only just wanted to know the reasonable price.

(But if you can ask John Harmon or Larry Sayre if they have SOMETHING ELSE to sell, it would be great! ;)
As I know, they do not have emails, so it's hard to contact with them)

John is selling a collection on Ebay right now, the 0-4-0 isn't one but the HP locos and boilers are his (someone else is selling for him, I guess he didn't trust my bad luck selling on Ebay!)

Does anyone know how to tell the Lindsay version from the Kemtron version?

Here is a pair of photos of my second 0-4-0. The motor says Lindsay on it, but I do not know if the engine was a Kemtron release or something else.

The loco was seized up fairly bad, there was some sort of gunk binding the wheels up, so the engine had to come apart for cleaning and lubrication.

Here is what it looks like apart:

Here is the boiler casting, with some of that gunk still on it (the white/grey stuff):

There IS no difference between the versions- Lindsay, Robico , Kemtron- the only way to tell is if it actually has the original packaging. They were made from the same molds, and the name changed when they changed hands. Even when John Harmon was making them, the cast parts are the same except fot the changes he made for a can motor.

Is that the scrapper one from that Ebay lot? That one was really bad, I'm surprised the tires were still on the cast centers. Usually when the zinc rot is that bad the driver spokes break off. Does the motor work?
