Here's a topic that might be able to fit into a couple (at least) catagories.

I found this pic of an old steam train used for logging in the late 1880s in BC. First, can anyone ID it, and second, Would anyone here care to try and scratch build it? Looks like it had a tree fall on it

That curved piece under the cab...I have seen it before in a book (Abdill?) or Timber Times mag. When I come up for air, I'll look for it and maybe ID it. Build a model of it? Most of my stuff looks like rocks or trees fell on them anyway!

That is a candidate for the ugliest (in a good way)locomotive out there.
I think the curved cab piece helped with aerodynamics...
