The Locomotive
Ruby Kit #1 Black, No Pressure Gauge, Live Steam 1:20.3 SCALE, 45MM GAUGE
Ruby is a freelance, gauge 1, 1:20.3 scale, live steam locomotive based on Baldwin practice. It has been designed to be both simple to operate and sophisticated enough to satisfy more experienced modelers. With proper car, Ruby should give years of service in the garden.

Operating a live-steam locomotive is much different from running an electrically powered engine. It is a more hands-on, interactive experience. The locomotive must be periodically fueled, oiled, and watered. As supplied, Ruby is manually controlled, which means that you must actually drive the locomotive using the controls in the cab, just as you would a full-size engine.

The performance of the engine is also unlike electric locomotives. Ruby should pull up to half a dozen standard-size freight cars on good, level track, which is about the same capacity as a full size locomotive of this configuration. Grades and sharp curves will diminish its capability. A good engineer will learn the engine's characteristics and idiosyncrasies overtime, to get the best performance and longest duration from it.

The Kit
This pre-painted kit can be assembled with a minimum of tools in just a few hours. Follow the instructions carefully and you should have no trouble.

Your kit is packed in four styrofoam trays. On the top of each box us a list of the parts contained inside. Refer the part numbers to the parts list. Each part of group of parts is packed in its own plastic bag. Familiarize yourself with the parts, but leave them in their respective bags until you are ready to use them.

Follow the instruction sequentially, referring to the drawings as you go for clarification. Make sure you understand each step before proceeding. The part number is in parenthesis after each part name.
