JD Locomotive Works L.L.C. - Dependable On Time Precision Machine Work
 
THE EUREKA
 
I went Boulder City today to meet a new friend of mine, Dan Markoff.  He owns and Operates the 1875 Baldwin built 8/18 C.  She was badly burned in a fire years ago.  Dan Purchased her and spent 6 years restoring her to factory condition.  I cannot say enough good things about Dan.  He is very nice and very knowledgable.  He gave me a cab ride and let me fire her for a little while.  I told him that we plan on building her in 2 1/2" scale.  He said he would help any way he could.   Enjoy the video and the photos.
