Hi there railroad - o D d i T y - fans ! :wave:



Always handy if you can't make up your mind which way to go ... ;)

... of haven't decided whether to model a turntable or not ! L:



I've seen the cute lil' Welsh ones of course.

But never knew that they were made this large as well.



This beast is a 138-Ton monster built for Mexican Railways.





Fairlie nice loco, if you ask me ! :doh:



:)



Si.

Seems like that loco would be just too heavy for light rail to support it.

Hi Michael :mex:



Oh come on ! ... It's ONLY about 11-Tons down-force per wheel ! :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

Code-100 should take it ...

... but 83 ?



I dunno.:w:



The FACE of the MONSTER ! :bg:





The 200-year old Trevithick contraption, they recon was about 7-Tons total ...

... or 1.75-Tons per wheel.



It busted quite a few rails, so we are told.

Very short CAST-IRON 'flanged' sections, at the time.

Only really designed to support wagons drawn by horses.



Hope you used beefy enough rail for that new stub-switch ! ;)



:old dude:



Si.

Hi Tom and all,
A zebra pushme-pullyou?? Dunno either but it looks like a perway wotzit.

I'm assuming it is captive to a museum somewhere given the post and placard in front of it. I wonder if someone got a photo of the placard??
