Mike:

Thank you for posting the links to the WWI video.  The first one appears to be all US railways - I wonder if the first part is training images, then about mid-way through the footage gets really interesting.  I like the way the tracks thread through the town ruins.  In one of the shots, you can really see the loco rock back and forth on the rough track - really neat!


At Fort Benning, Georgia, the infantry museum there has this Davenport 2-6-2 and passenger car on display.  I think these were remnants from base equipment used to train operating troops, perhaps, but also to transport soldiers to training areas.  I am not certain if this ran up to WWII or not.


That little passenger car would sure look good in 35n2!


I'm not sure what you'd use for the locomotive, but the running gear is very small proportioned, so maybe there's a convenient 0-6-0 mechanism.

I'm looking forward to see what you come up with!
