Aristo-Craft 2-8-8-2 Mallet, rare Southern Pacific. Available with also hard to find Vanderbilt tender, converted to prototype oil. Really like new, check the pictures of the wheels.

$1,200 or best offer, great price, check eBay to compare

This loco was going to become a Cab Forward but the guy who ordered it pass on before the project was started.  The locomotive has only been test run.

Southern Pacific is a very rare original road name for this locomotive.

The Vanderbilt  tender is converted from coal to oil.  The S.P. did not have coal fired locomotives (coal load I believe is under the conversion).

The low quality Aristocraft speaker was replaced with a much big and better one and there is a custom made speaker mount.

The tender was lowered to a more prototypical height by shorting the swivel points on the tender.


The tender is completely set up for Phoenix Sound all that is missing is the sound board.   A sound board can be included for an extra charge. 

The locomotive to tender draw-bar pin is replace with a longer one to prevent uncoupling which is not uncommon with the stock pin. The original pin can be included.

For sale from Bob Baxter:

As train shows aren't what they used to be and neither am I,  I'm starting to take Parts of the Door Hollow Shortline and recreating a layout in the back of my "barn" train room.

This building made some appearances on the Del Oro Modular layout but was too big for the DHS. It's a model of the famous Alpine Hose firehouse in Georgetown Colorado where the Georgetown loop starts. It stands 30" at the tower. The entire unit is 18" deep and the building is 11" wide and stands 14" high. The structure is thin plywood covered with vinyl sheet.


I feel that as it is the only one I know of it should be worth $150. All these items are available in Fallbrook but very difficult to ship.


My Phone is 760-213-0635 Hope to hear from you, Bob Baxter.
