OK Duncan, this is more like something I would build since it is rather cool and still qualifies as a 2-2-0.




The caption tells it all. This is from Gerald Best's MEXICAN NARROW GAUGE, an extremely cool book which I just got. The Shay loco mentioned in the caption is not shown...it was not a 2-2-0. This little fellow is 3 foot gauge. I believes this fits in since the wheel arrangement appears to be a single lead axle, a drive axle, and that's all. How about this one?

Dave-here is the lokie I mentioned the other day, she's a beaut.

This works for me and the matching trailer allows for the 'ladies' to drop the canvas to keep their skin fair and hide the charms from the prospective or is it prospector? clients for it doesn't do to tell all right off the bat.

Can this little beauty make it up the high line behind the town?

Looks like a brass and solder job for Charlie.

Goody--Goody--Goody

I'm assuming this is the right channel for the 11 o'clock news.

Perfect for the oil fired MRy, but......ah...........er........... which way do her go?

Woodie--Do you have a scanner to get the mag or book photos posted or do you photograph them?

Duncan-I just take uncopyrighted photos of copyrighted photos and send them here for very big bucks. No scanners for me...

 I love single drivers! :glad:

Another single driver is here. But, 4-2-0.

In the early 1950's, a Japanese modeler scratchbuilt this single driver in On30(On2-1/2).

I love that LA & SP 2-2-0! I just added that to my "someday" list of must-build items! Shouldn't be too hard to model it in 1/24th.

OK, my personal favorite for a single axle driver engine. :2t:
I am guessing about 36" driver diameter.
Would like to know more about it, but no luck so far.....
