History

From Frisco.org

As a former member of the (unfortunately) now defunct Kansas City Live Steamers, I had the pleasure of operating a number of fine 1 1/2 inch to the foot scale (1/8 full size), 7 1/2 inch gauge steam engines, including a B&O 0-4-0 oil fired switcher built by Edson Chadborn, a Southern 2-6-0 coal-fired Mogul owned by Harold K Vollrath, and a very impressive UP 2-6-2 coal-fired Pacific built by Fred Shields.

Marty Harrison wrote, July 2016:

The Kansas City Live Steamers shutdown more than 15 years ago after facing a lawsuit involving a horse accident where a rider jumped over a train and the horse kicked a passenger.
