You'd need a BIG garden for this!

For 2017, the Boothbay Railway Village will be bringing a live steam engine to the Railroad Hobby Show. The locomotive was built by the H K Porter Company in Pittsburgh in 1925 for the Raritan Copper Company in New Jersey. H K Porter specialized in industrial locomotives, and the Boothbay locomotive was one of eleven owned by Raritan Copper. The 2-foot gauge engine will be set up outdoors at the Railroad Hobby Show, operating on approximately 100 feet of track under its own steam power.   Boothbay Railway Village operates a fully certified boiler shop and completed restoration of the H K Porter locomotive in 2014.

Great pix and vid! Thanks for sharing. Is the engine a 'static' display or has it a short track to move on? Again exec pix.
