Hello all ...Beggs had some competition in the American live steam market  when Weeden entered in 1888 with it's Dart ... made with minor variations till at least 1910.   

Beggs gets credit for the first section track .....first tubular track award goes to Weeden .  

Little steamer had enough steam to pull it's self around ....it would pull the tender most of the way around ...  passenger car ..no ....still need some fine tuning of the burner ... and water level to maximize steam production .

See link for exciting video .
