Offering the Live Steamer complete miniature boiler services, including design, fabrication, inspection and repair.
Welcome to Ridge Locomotive Works. We offer the following products and services:
If you are building a locomotive to a common live steam design chances are we have built one or more and have drawings on hand, thus can provide you with a firm quote. We have drawings for most Allen Models, Little Engines, and Railroad Supply 1 ½ scale locomotives. We also have provided the boilers to Tom Artzberger for his RGS 20 project. Please check our price list, and then contact me to receive a quote.
While we have built and repaired copper boilers, we can usually provide a steel boiler for about on half the cost of a copper boiler. We will do copper boilers, but only on a time available basis. Due to the unknowns involved we will not provide a firm quote or delivery for copper boilers.
Inspection and Repair:
We have modern inspection equipment and can examine your boiler internally as well as performing hydrostatic testing. Once inspected we can provide you a report listing recommended repairs. This work is done strictly on a time and materials basis. Please call for our current shop rate. It will save you money to clean the boiler thoroughly before we inspect it.
We are not currently accepting new custom boiler work.
