The three 1.6" scale, 7 1/2" ga. locomotives built by the late Baltimore master machinist and founding member of the Chesapeake and Allegheny Live Steamers, R. Bruce Hamilton. Two B&O P-7 President class Pacifics, 5300 and 5301, and C&O Greenbrier #614. All were built by Bruce from the original blue prints to their as-delivered appearances. The 5300 is privately owned by the family of the CALS member who bought the engine from Bruce and no longer operates. I believe both of the others are still owned by Bruce's family, and they allow the club to operate them at their track in Leakin Park in Baltimore a couple of times a year. They are absolutely first rate models, very reliable and free-steaming locomotives. Bruce also built a 1/2" scale display model of NYC Hudson 5400 that could run on either spirits or compressed air. Like any model, he had to make compromises so they could operate, but most of them are confined to the controls and gauges in the cab.
...
Bruce's 5300 was sold back to the family. I was to be the caretaker of it when it was going to be put on display at the family's company. The 5301 belongs to another CALS member and he converted it from oil to coal fired.....and then to propane.
The Hudson is also set up to burn coal. Bruce told a friend of mine that one day when we went for a visit.

Here are some photos of Bruce Hamilton's locomotives.

I have one I took at a Timonium, MD train show some years ago where both of Bruce's P-7's were on display on a trailer, and I persuaded the great man to pose sitting between them.
