Both locomotives at the John Blue house in Laurinburg, NC were built by Alex Schneider and my self in Loveland, Colorado. The 2-6-2 is a coal fired and superheated live steamer. The steam outline 2-6-4T is powered by a Ford 2300CC Pinto engine.

This is a coal-fired, live-steam locomotive. In addition, they also have an internal-combustion, hydraulic-drive, steam -profile, 2-6-4T locomotive operating. I believe most, if not all, of this equipment came from the Timnath Northwestern Railway, formerly in Timnath CO.
