Build your own live steam or steam outlined electric locomotive using RMI's Steam Kits. Each kit comes with un-machined castings, hardware, panels and parts to build your own locomotive. Start with Kit 1 and advance to the next one as you complete your kit and  your budget allows.

Kits are available for the 2-6-2 Prairie, 2-6-0 Sweetcreek Mogul, the 2-4-2 Frontier and the 2-4-4 Forney locomotives in either steam powered or electric powered steam outline. Machined parts are available at an additional fee for those that are not able to machine their own parts.

Click on the desired STMKIT # in the left hand column to view more information about each of the individual steam kits. You may order from those pages.
