It is all handmade, including the bolts, nuts and screws used. Except for these bolts, nuts and screws, it is hand carved out of walnut wood.

In the pictures the covers are off of the valve boxes and cylinder heads so that the works may be seen.

Great detail has been taken to provide for packing around all push rods as well as groves for piston rings.

When first purchased, it was heavily coated, in live steam channels, with line deposits which would indicate that it had been run at one time.
