Excelsior Estate Railway Lokey

The Excelsior Estate Railway lokey. It is a Brookville battery trammer chassis from the Copperopolis consolidated mine in Copperopolis, CA. The power is a Studebaker six engine and transmission, original Ford "A" rear end to chains. The Caterpiller "20" radiator was last produced in 1932. Cab is from a Westside lbr. co drying yard lokey, also a Brookville. It is 18" gauge, 20" drivers on 30" wheelbase. All in working order excepting a gas tank and a battery. A very fine piece. I have ties (sleeping dogs) joint bars / spikes etc. and 16# rail enough for my 174' of planned line from the street to the back garden. Construction to start as soon as I sort out the mana brought home this last saturday, 7 tons worth

The track plan is to be a "J" figure with a turntable at the back garden ed having two stubs from it, one for the lokey shed and the other to be the woodpile loading track. I have in hand as well a switch nearly completed , needed some grinding and fitting together , this will allow a stub siding into the back corner to store the odd stock .
