    Everything is in good shape

    Wheels are wood spoke and structurally sound.

    All original 4 hubcaps, Fire Box,Nickel Plated Stacking petcock, sight tube,ect....

    73 inches wide from outer hubcap to outer hubcap. 12 feet long. Front wheels are 54 inch diameter and rear wheels are 57 inch diameter. Boiler is 34 inches external diameter. All dimensions are approximate

    Was at Mc Reynolds museum in Canada 25 years ago then moved here and has been here since. There is nothing on the hub caps but its to believe that this started off in the USA then was moved to Canada where it spent most of its time and then was brought back to the USA 25 years ago.

    Total weight approximately 6,000 lbs.

      57" is the dia. of Civil War cannon wheels. Of course the hubs are different, but some re-enactors can't afford to pay thousands for exact original style & that is probably the correct wheel for after the CW. Might ask around if you want to make some money.
