That IS neat!      Mine should be similar, only gas mechanical, rather than steam.  Also it will be painted yellow..........  BUT DON'T I WISH.......

If you would like to see this little steamer do its stuff, go to:  YOU TUBE  -  "MINITURE RAILWAY,  SWANLEY-NEW BARN"

Wait till you have to pick it up to put it back on the track---


Herb has a point.  Fitting a (fat) man inside a miniture engine means it has to be pretty big (heavy).  Below are two British steam locomotives, both run on 7 1/4 gauge track.  The smaller is a scale model like normally used for ride on trains.        The other.... well, it's...BIGGER.

This is another view of "SIR GOSS".  Americanise the lines a bit and it'd be right at home on Woodie's layout!

Note:   If anyone wanted to MODEL these miniture trains,  using HO track, ETC, for 1in=1ft  (1/12 scale)  works out about right.

My guess is it's the weather, but for whatever reason, enclosed miniture locomotives seem to be fairly common in England.  Here are a couple of views of a 7 1/4 diesel I found on you tube.  (ABBEYDALE MINITURE RAILWAY)

I doubt I could get my big butt through that tiny doorway but this proves 7 1/4--7 1/2 inclosed minature locomotives are practical.  In the video clip, 'Ole Blue was moving right along and staying on the rails.  Note the neat engine control stand inside the cab!  Now THIS is what I'm aiming for.

My nephew has a new 7 1/2 engine on order,  it's a Porter, steam profile but electrically powered.  Here's a picture of one just like it from the same builder.

Hey Bob-

Is the simulated simian included?

Must be a rolling ad for Woodies "Monkey Model Railroad Association"
