Default Aster Greta Northern S-2 Built

I have a GN S-2 that I built assuming I would actively participate in various Steam Ups and the local Gauge 1 track nearby. As it happens, my love is building and to that end I really enjoyed this build. Aster produces products of the highest quality and are just a pleasure to build.

Having said that I wish to sell my S-2 and Tender. Along with the Engine/Tender I have test stands and the blower fan to get the boiler up to temperature. I have made exactly one run with the engine and that was with the speed lever full speed forward and just adjusted the throttle for various speed tests. I did not try reverse. The engine ran quite smoothly throughout the range and I feel that the timing is pretty close.

This is far as I wish to go with this engine and would like to part with it. If anyone is interested please let me know. I have about $7000 invested in the engine and accessories. Any reasonable offers will be considered.

Thank you,

I have decided to not continue in live steam railroading. The GN2 has RC servos now installed but can be easily removed. I am willing to take a considerable loss to pass the engine/tender on to a new home. Please let me know if any interest at all.

Thanks,

Iran Ausley

Hi there, I'm a newbie to large scale and looking to gradually build a "operating/meant to be used" collection. Pardon me, but when you say the RC servos can be easily removed, do you mean it can be easily reverted to running on live steam? Feel free to PM me

Many thanks, AL

Hello Al,

The locomotive always runs on steam. The servos control the forward-reverse lever, the regulator throttle valve, and the blower. It just allows remote control of the locomotive instead of having to move around the circuit operating the controls manually. Triple R Services created a servo pack to control the three functions remotely. I haven't installed the receiver and battery in the tender as of yet. To return the locomotive controls back to factory, just remove the servo control arms, reinstall the original levers and remove the servo tray.

I hope this helps. I will send you a picture if it will help.

Cheers,

Iran
