This engine Model 4097 belongs to my father. He received it as a gift from his parents in the late 1920's. It came complete with the boiler and base, however at some time after he went to college or during WWII all was lost except for the engine itself (no base or boiler).

In 2007, I found this boiler and base on eBay and restored them. They wer in very poor condition and needa complete strip and repaint. The engine is my father's, see photo above fortunately it only needed cleaning but did not require any resoration. I mounted it to the restored base, to resemble what he had as a child. I am still looking for a proper smoke stack, pressure guage, relief valve and whistle to finish the restoration. If you can supply any of these, please contact me.
