We've started building the Eureka in 2.5" scale for a customer. Here are a few pictures. You can see quite a bit more on our website: http://www.jdlocomotiveworks.com

Lovely.

Questions:

What will you be covering the boiler with?
PSI?
Expected performance specs?

The working pressure will be 100 - 120 PSI. The boiler will have either a ceramIc or fiberglass insulation cover by 16 or 18 gauge jacket that will be blued. The locomotive be fired on wood and should be able to easily pull 30+ adults. It will weigh close to 1000 lbs.
