71/2” Gauge Climax

As I mentioned in an earlier Blog I armed club founder member Bill Shepherd with a digi camera before he tootled off to the Chicago Area to pick up and bring a loco back to California. The loco Bill went to pick up was at the home of the Illinois Live Steamers. Well, the lad did his job with camera. The loco that Bill picked up was a battery powered Climax and it is a real beauty as the photos he took – see below – attest.
