Unk-very cool! Unusual that the narrow gauge loco is larger than the standard gauge loco. #11 is a REAL CUTIE!

Woodie

A friend sharply observed that the drivers might be a bit small for a Maine Forney. They are 12 inch which is the largest size my wheel-maker could run. Should have been 13 1/4 to be scale. Actually, the prototype for this engine, (new) WW&F No. 10, was built as a plantation engine and doesn't look completely "Maine" its self. We're pretty close to this prototype.

Did you notice that the drivers are solid disks with added detail? Doubt I'd fool a good toolmaker on this but jetting the spokes was not an option. I was WAY over budget on the drivers and was not able to afford such a nice detail.

In the overall scheme, this engine is not an end in its self.
Think of it as "scenery" supporting the experience of visiting Bountyland Railway. It all comes down to this, It's a neat little train-ride in an old man's back yard.
Nothing more. :old dude:

Ok, that is just insanely cool! And yes, riding INSIDE is way better than riding on.
