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.

If you wish to order the aluminum (or bronze in the case of the quadrant lower) versions of these parts, simply changed the default quantities of the desired items before you add to cart. For new engine builds, we recommend you use the cast iron parts for weight, and in the case of the quadrant lower, a significant price savings over the bronze version.
