OK-- there is the 4 wheel lead truck that I talked about earlier.

If you look at that photo quick enough, it looks like one of Evil Kinevle's stunts.

"Watch Evil jump this monster steam locomotive over three Bloated Goat customers!!!"

Tickets, anyone?

Herb

Download this book for some info on singles. http://si-pddr.si.edu/jspui/handle/10088/2424

free download from the Smithsonian although it does not include your particular loco.

The driver is 62" and note that she has a cowcatcher on the little tender also, indicating that she ran backwards a bit.Wonder what one in 6ft Erie RR broad gauge would look like: about as wide as long?

Now, that IS a beauty. She looks like one of those "fantasy" lokies used on the "Birdwater &..." but she's for real. I don't need anything like this but she just calls out..."build me, build me".
Fie on you for posting this photo!!!!!

Woodie

That thing looks more like a cartoon of itself than a cartoon would.

OK---Enough of these wimpy little single driver toys.

Here is a real man's single--and NOT English, either!
