Balboa K36 wanted
« on: January 29, 2013, 10:20:20 PM »
Looking for a Balboa K36, must be in good running order, no driver quartering issues, worn side rods ect.  I had a real nice looking engine but it had major issues from being run with a out of quarter driver causing severe side rod wear.   Model needs to be complete with its original box, prefer unpainted but open to all.  Thanks in advance.   Mike

Take a look at mine that I posted pictures of for customscaler's question. If interested , e-mail me at

I did have three of this model, this is the last one, and I went overboard on the rebuild. A really good runner with the can motor in it. DCC would have to go into the tender if you wanted to add that. The weight and motor fill the loco boiler up. It looks rough with the paint the way it is  , but a solid model after I went through it. Some scuffing on the wheels , but the plating is not worn through.
