Lot #777 1960 HAND CRAFTED UNION PACIFIC 484 SCALE TRAIN
Lot #777 - This train was handcrafted by Daniel Boone VI in the 1960's. It took a total of 5 years to complete. It was featured in several magazines at the time including "Popular Mechanics" and "National Geographic." Every single piece of train was handwrought in Daniel Boone's forge and is truly a work of art. It sat dormant for a number of years after being used as an amusement ride in Maggie Valley and Burnsville, NC, until I purchased it in an estate sale in 1989. I carefully and painstakingly removed all the old paint and cleaned the entire train to the bare metal. It was completely restored in my state of the art body shop that I owned at the time and it remains in a temperature controlled environment in perfect condition. It is a fully functional scale model of a Union Pacific 484 Baldwin Engine plus four Pullman cars and tender. Engine and tender combined weighs 4000lbs. Each Pullman car weighs 400lbs. It can pull 36 people with its fully functional coal burning steam engine. Total train length is approximately 52.5' and includes a 1/2 mile of handwrought track. Daniel Boone VI is a direct descendant of the legendary Daniel Boone, and was my grandfather. He has many iron works featured in Appalachia and historical Williamsburg, VA, including Governor's Palace.
