    Hi Gauger's:

    Brenda and I was at the Riply's Believe It Or Not Musuem in Gattlinburg, Tennessee yesterday. We saw this Jupiter Locomotive and tender made out of match sticks! Do you think this person has to much time on their hands? sign1

    I bet some guy would want it DCC equipped though.

    Seriously, that made it to Tennessee?
    I saw it (or one like it) about 5 years ago at the Ripley's Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

    From what I've seen, matchstick-based machines are a staple of Ripley's BION museums. I remember seeing a life-size 1913 Rolls-Royce in the Orlando museum... well a brochure actually. Can't remember what else I've seen.

    Great locomotive! Too bad there isn't a match around to get steam up! :D
