Louis JerseyytUe, ' King-Size Model He Made His Own Locomotive , By BOB Telogfftph Staff Writer An Alton pipefitter who always wanted to be a railroad engineer now throttles his own steam engine alongside dlesels on the Big Four tracks. V. A. Schmidt's dream led him Into a five year Job of constructing o miniature scale model of a steam engine and the installation of a pint sized railroad system at "Playland" off Broadway In Alton, adjoining the Big Four tracks. Engineers, firemen and switchmen of diesels wave and shout greetings at the engineer of the little steam engine as they pass. , Ex-Flrcmnn "I have'an uncle and cousins who are railroad men and it is hard to get it out of your blood," Schmidt eays. Schmidt was a fireman for the Illinois Terminal Railroad in the days of the steam engine trains. His only chance to get behind the throttle of a train engine was on small engines in the _ yards of a steel mill. His pint-size reminder brings many'old railroad men to "Playland" to reminisce, wifh, him on the days 'of steam.. Schmidt belongs to the Wabash, Frisco and Pacific Association Inc., an organization dedicated to railroad - hobbies .arid the education of teenagers on the operation of railroads. His feeling for railroading is summed up in his little chugger which had its maiden voyage in 1958 after five years of dedicated construction of exact details in his garage at 3609 Western Avenue in Alton. Gathered Parts Parts were made out of whatnots gathered over a period of years and made with painstaking detail. • Skills learned as a former welder and presently as a pipe- fitter for Modern Plumbing and Heating Co., in East Alton contributed to the re-creation of a 1900 train steam engine. His son, Tim, a senior at Alton High School, is now Schmidt's fireman, switchman and porter. Nothing gives Schmidt more kicks than introducing small fry to the .color of the "Casey Jones" era by explaining the functions of his engine on a ride over exacting minature tracks with an authentic' system of switches and signals.
