Several years ago, we began putting a packet of mints in each of our shipments. Some very funny comments like "are these aspirin for the headaches you get from building Pochers!" We hope you have been enjoying them.

0-6-0T Baldwin Locomotive in 1:24 scale

This 1.24 scale engine is modeled after the West Side Lumber Company's 0-6-0T Baldwin locomotive built in 1875. It’s also known as Star.

The engine was built from original blueprints from Baldwin locomotive. The West Side Lumber operated in California and used this engine for construction of the logging railroad until 1906 when the engine was sold.

The only commercial parts used in this model are inside of the cab, valves, levers, gauges & bell. The wheels castings are also a commercial product. The tires for the wheels were made by a friend for the engine. The air pump is a prototype piece made by someone else.

Rest of the model is scratch built out of brass by me. The cab is built out of flat brass sheet stock using 1mm bolts to hold it together from Scale Hardware. By building in this manner, it could be taken apart in the future for painting.

The frame and the rest of the engine were machined on my Sherline milling machine and lathe. I used a lot of 1mm rivet heads for additional detail from Scale Hardware. The engine is still not finished and the side rods still need to be made including finishing the cab interior.

So far I have close to 300 hours of work put into the model. Down the road the engine will be made operational by installing a motor in it.
