  • Cedar Point Pics

    Pics from a recent family trip to Cedar Point in Sandusky OH. There are not as many train pics as I had liked and to my disappointment, the static display of #3 Albert is not as accessible as it once was. I guess that's where I'll start.

    Albert is a 2-6-0 Daventport built in 1910, click here for more info.

    Judy K started out as a 0-4-0 Vulcan built in 1923. I tried to get some detail shots of the backhead.

    The Engineer having fun with me. Some of the turret detail, you might make out the site glass to the lower left, the injectors and the throttle (the bass bolts)

    The Park favourite, Myron H. originally a 0-4-0 coal hauling Vulcan built in 1922.

    #22's big beefy steam dome and tiny bell seem out of place nut look 'right' for some reason. I love the headlight artwork. The crew having fun with me again, but note the better shot of the throttle and injector detail. Both Myron H. and Judy K. run steam breaks, but the crew say the seldom use them.

    More to come, stay tuned.
    Cheers, Heath.

          Nice pics!

          I just looked at their roster of locos. They sure liked 2-4-0s, didn't they?

              I forgot what tractor this is and lost the notes I made.

                  Thanks Tom. I hit post by mistake and have since added some more pics. I did not take any photos of the Antique train display behind the fire engine, :erm: if anyone has some please post here.
                  Cheers, Heath.

                    There was a TRAIN DISPLAY and you didn't take a picture? [:-irked]

                    Some nice photos of the steam tractors.

                      I'm with Dave on this one, a train display and on pictures!!!!!!!

                      Great pictures, I've always been fascinated with those old steam tractors, lots of modelling possibilities in those pictures.

                      Thanks for sharing.

                        I haven't been to Cedar Point since I was a kid and this display was definitely not there then. Thanks for posting.

                        Is there anything new at Kings Island that I didn't know about? (;

                          Any idea who made that old fire engine? (Looks like an Amoskeag engine, but I'm no expert.)

                          edit Looks like it's a LaFrance:

                            Dave, the engine is a La France Fire Engine Co., 3rd size, built 1904, serial no. 496.

                            Sorry guys, it is right behind the fire engine. I remember a British style engine, quite large, at least 1/24 scale. Old, the cab looked like it was tin. I did find this pic on the net

                            Cheers, Heath.
