Nice but I don;t think a real Porter would run that fast. Looks like a nice scratch build project on a switcher mechanism.

These are Great little engines. I really like mine. I wonder who ended up with the molds after the K-line / Lionel dust up? I would be happy to get a few more of these for my railroad but nobody has made more of them in the almost 10 years since the end of the brief K-Lionel period.

It's fun playing around with this engine, but I guess the smoke apparatus is kaput, since I have been running it now for some time but can't get any smoke from it. Al B.

It has fan driven smoke, so it should smoke pretty well. Note that it takes probably at least 20 drops of fluid to wake it up.

I've looked a couple of times and I can't see anyone driving or stoking that little engine. Expect a visit from the government and the union folks.

More importantly, there is no place for any coal to stoke the engine! That's why I included a little coal car. All I need is a fireman with a shovel.

Thanks G. I pumped in more fluid and ran it for about 15 min. I had it pulling a flat car. Suddenly noticed it derailed. When I checked I found that the screws came off the coupler and it was sitting along side the track. Fixed the problem and started running. Low and behold it started smoking. Thanks for the help.

Hard to pull without being coupled! Glad you got the smoke going, it's actually a pretty good smoker.

Was checking out eBay last week when I accidentally came upon a little engine that caught my fancy. I thought it was rather cute so I put in my bid. And low and behold I actually won it without a struggle. It is the Lionel K-line 6-21230 Ringling Brothers Barnum Baily Porter Steam. Well I got it day before yesterday and have been having a fun time just watching this cute little machine run the tracks of my Tombstone Southwest layout. I thought you might enjoy seeing it run around crazy so I...

Last Circus Train South: Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Through Lula GA.

Stirling R. Callahan ·
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Tcjb95H5-4 In this video we're in Lula to watch the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus train run down the NS Greenville District for the last time. We waited for the train most of the day and it finally arrived just at sunset. I've had a lot of great memories with this train over the years and it's heart breaking to think that these cars will no longer travel U.S. rails any longer after May of 2017. So please join me in my rendition of a final...
