Live Steam Model Scale Train by Richard Johnson

Large live steam brass scale model train built by Richard “Dick” E. Johnson, assembled in 1979. Custom scale, approximately 3 1/2 gauge. Similar in style to American-style steam engines. With the initials of the Denver, South Park, & Pacific Railroad and “Alpine” along the side. While it bears the name of the 19th-century historic “Alpine” steam engine, it seems unique from this train. A metal plaque bearing Johnson’s initials and build year along the side. With a wooden display rail and metal stand. Train; height: 17 1/2 in x width: 48 1/2 in x depth: 7 1/2 in. Track; height: 3/4 in x width: 54 3/4 in x depth: 7 1/4 in.
