Default Looking for a LGB/Aster Frank S

Looking for a nice LGB/Aster Frank S locomotive in nice shape. Prefer boxed with no modifications unless its the Finescale Engineering fuel tank in the cab. Thanks in advance. Mike

I have seen them from $750 all the way to $1500+(which I think is insane). Fair price is going to depend on condition, box or no box, if anything is missing like the rubber pressure gauge cover. Along with how much its be ran.

And it runs well, looks to have had little use as the cast wheels had no shine or polish on them when I got it. I have run it just a few times. The road name on the bunker is vinyl lettering and easily peeled off.

I dont intend to let go of the Shay. But will be selling off some other non G scale stuff as we go into the holiday season. If you have a Frank S that you would let go of and are not in a big hurry. Let me know how much and we can go from there. Thanks.

Mike, I thought you had one already, and sold it. Seller's remorse?

I let my last Frank S go to someone that wanted to get their first live steamer and at that time, I was ready for a different loco. There are so many Frank S locos out there, its usually not real hard to find. I do have a line on one but not in a place to afford what he is asking. As we move into the fall/winter train season, I should be able to get my O gauge and HO brass sold off, along with some potential overtime at work. There is another one someone here may let go of, waiting on pics and pricing on that one right now. My wife has a nice Pearse 0-4-0 switcher with the slope back tender. With new RCS remote control and a palm size transmitter, its a pleasure to run. I only have to get out of my lawn chair to top up water or refresh the lubricator. I can keep it going all afternoon if I want. I want to set up a Frank S that way. For the right Frank S and some cash, I would let go of the Shay as I do have a vehicle repair bill(new fuel injectors in my Jeep's diesel engine) to pay for. Mike
