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.
