Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!.  It's also Steamy Sunday here on the Blog!  Here is another look at my new Emma locomotive made by Accucraft.  From this angle you can see a bit of the controls for it.  In the front side window is a glimpse of where you put the oil to lubricate the locomotive as it runs, it mixes with steam.  In the back, the lower bronze knob is the gas control and the upper silvery one is the throttle.  The circular tubing, visible from the back side window, goes up to the steam pressure gauge.  The locomotive is an 0-4-0 Tank engine modeled after the kind that carry their water over the boiler.  This one has no fuel tender but probably should have as there is no where to store it if this was an actual locomotive.  Also, for some reason, the whistle was lost before I got it.

If you missed it, there is a video of it HERE where you can see it running.


  1. Complicated (to me) package miniaturized into the locomotive

    1. To me too but fun when you figure them out.
