Stuart Type Forney 2-4-2 Live Steam Locomotive

3 3/4" Scale Stuart Live Steam Locomotive Fired On Coal, Oil or Propane

Stuart Forney Live Steam Locomotive

Need a compact powerhouse that can ride in the back of your pickup? Want to ride in your locomotive? Our Forneys will fill your needs. These 2-4-4 locos are available in two versions: Stuart with side tanks and Sandy River without. Forney style locomotives were very popular because of their compact size and good tracking abilities when run in either forward or reverse. They were typically used in branch and short line operations where the longer range afforded by a separate tender was not important.

Because Stuart is based on 2-foot gauge prototypes, it is a large, robust locomotive. Its proportions make it an ideal prototype for the miniature railroader who wants to ride his loco. With a 4-wheel trailing truck and a generously sized bunker, there is ample room for
a full scale engineer.

Stuart models are offered as raw or machined castings, raw or machined burn-outs, or complete, ready to run engines. Water legs style boilers and Walschaerts valve gear are standard.
