We have investigated many times what is available via Hans and Aster for GS4: very few. The conversion would be extensive with most parts having to be custom made (throttle, boiler- though Accucraft one would be a consideration, pistons, wick container, fuel tank(again Accucraft would be consideration, blower, sight glass, etc.)
On the other hand having an electric at that price is a bargain either for an running, to admire or....desire I say parts. The possibility can be made a reality as shown by the work of Justin having gone from electric, gas fired and finally coal fired Accucraft K27. The steam community has seen several other conversion projects such as: N&W J, NYC Vanderbilt, Milwaukee Road Hiawatha so this would be another interesting project.
