Hi Everyone,
I am looking for some steam locomotive plans from which to build a 1 Gauge engine. I would like to find something without cast drive wheels to save that expense. Has anyone seen such a thing for free or for a small cost?

Thanks,
nacalder

Check out Kozo's books too. He's got a wealth of information on building live-steam locomotives from scratch/bar-stock, i.e. no castings.

Google "kozo" & "steam" and you'll come up with 100's of links !

Here's 1 link :

Look at the books :

The Pennsylvania A3 Switcher
Building the New Shay
Building the Shay
Building the Climax
Building the Heisler

Even if you don't use those plans, there's an IMMENSE amount of useful and very practical information on machining, sheet metal work, silver soldering, making your own tooling, etc. !!
