Re: [HOsteam] Remember Aristocraft?

Thomas Beutel <Thomas.Beutel@...>

Hi Chris,

The few that I have all need work, most likely due to sitting around in
someone's closet for 40 years. I have the 2-4-2 Columbia that runs fairly
smoothly but the motor is sluggish. And let's face it, these were made in
the days before low current motors. I plan to take it apart and remotor it.

Aristocraft steam was before my time, too. Like you I've seen quite a few
on eBay and have even been tempted to bid on a couple. I wonder how
well they ran?
