Your Dad's locomotive is made by a company called Aster in Japan. This one is a full live steamer and burns Butane for fuel. It is a 1/32 scale model and it will run on any G scale gauge 1 track. They are now a very coveted locomotive and sell for very big money. It also looks like the factory display case too and the loco looks to be in pristine condition.

Steamer is right, that is a beautiful and valuable locomotive; escpecially if it has not been steamed. Not to mention the fact that it is 31 years old. If you have never fired a live steam locomotive before, I would not start with that one. I would put the cover back on it and admire it.

Very nice piece.

Thanks for the great info fellas. The loco is in great condition and it's been fired maybe a dozen or so times when I was a kid. My dad would prop up the front and run it real slow and blow the whistle. Prity cool to see when I was a little boy. I hope it stays in the fam for a good long time. Thanks again for the info.
