The Canton, St. Paul & Pacific Railway is a 1 1/2" scale live steam railroad. The phrase "live steam" refers to any scale model that operates on steam power in the same manner as the full size prototype. "Live steam" can be stationary boilers, traction engines, boats, and, in our case, railroad locomotives.
Throughout the history of live steam railroading, scale steam locomotives have comprised the majority of locomotives being built by hobbyists; however, in more recent years, more enthusiasts are building scale models of modern diesel-electric locomotives. Unlike scale steam engines which operate exactly like their full size counterparts, these are usually gasoline or electrically powered.
Located on twelve acres of virgin forest that are protected by the Southeast Regional Land Conservancy, our railroad was built and is maintained by a handful of hard working members using mostly hand tools, picks, shovels, and steam or diesel locomotive power. The track gauge is 7 1/2" inches.
Live steam locomotives and rolling stock are generally built by individuals in their free time in their own machine shops. Equipment is transported to and from the railroad with pickup trucks, trailers, etc.
