DeWitt Clinton Steam Train

The DeWitt Clinton steam train was built in 1831 and named for the governor of New York. It was the first working steam locomotive built for service in the state.
I built this model because I have long had a fondness for the train’s design, with cars that look like stage coaches. It includes the engine, a supply car, and two coaches. The wagon wheels fit on regular straight and curved LEGO track pieces, but not on flex track pieces.
I believe this set would be of interest to train enthusiasts, especially those who are interested in locomotive history. They would make a great addition to a museum set (the original is in the Henry Ford museum in Michigan), in a historical park, or nostalgia ride.
