Post subject:  HK Porter 0-4-0 For Sale

This was my father's RR. He was former SP MOW. The property is for sale -- please PM me for more information if you are interested. Has a diesel locomotive (converted tractor), 12-passenger riding car, included shop with Armstrong turntable, inspection pit, 2-engine engine barn with shop, and various equipment for MoW and upkeep (extra rail, tie plates, hand tools, jacks, spikes, etc). Built with 60# rail.

Additionally, we would like to sell the 0-4-0CA Porter separately. Entertaining offers, to include donations to a good charity RR or museum. Originally contacted Brooks, but they declined. The engine was partially restored by my father and it runs. He turned the wheel profiles, honed the cylinders, and generally "trued it up". Not sure, but I think he set the valve timing. Still needs brakes, cab, and small details.
