Chloe

Chloe

The 0-4-2 Chloe is a freelance version of the typical Hawaiian sugar plantation engine. This small engine uses a riding car from which to operate and is lightweight and easy to handle. Despite its small size, it will pull a good load.

It is simple to build and more affordable. All parts can be handled on a lathe with a 9" swing and a reasonable size square-column bench-top mini-mill such as the Rong-Fu 45 or its clones.

A wide range of silhouettes and designs allows the builder to individualize the engine. For the live steamer with limited space and machining facilities, it is an ideal engine.
