I just love it! Imagine a "European" tank loco (Thomas?) fitted with a cowcatcher pulling some 4 wheel cars...in the "old west US". I guess it's OK, I have seen this many times in movies. I am still waiting to see a flick showing a UP 2-10-4 hauling a train of varnish across the hills in Ireland. That would be a hoot!

That parrot isn't dead, it's just sleeping...

Well, how about a Baldwin USATC S200 "Middle East" Class in Turkey?
Not to forget the Skyliners. Comes close to your dream, Woodie?

I'm glad this thread came to light again, I had lost track of it.

Si, that's Wile Coyote watching the action. Roadrunner is a bird. (kinda like a skinny parrot) I haven't scored a roadrunner figure off ebay yet. He is hard to get like I like 'em... cheap. :bg:

Herb, those horses were trained by a Nicaraguan prancing horse whisperer... lift those hoofs high! :mex:

Helmut, no not a dream of mine! My dream would be a 10 ton 2 foot gauge Shay hauling commuters through downtown Dallas. I just might get a job again to ride down there!

I love those old "western" figures! I can see that some different paint and maybe new barrels on the guns would be nice. The old barrels look like the guns are made to shoot around corners!

Woodie
