The cute lil' lockie that launched a 1000 modders !  :thumb:





" Waddling motion " ... YEP ! ... 100% prototypical !  :shocked:





I always knew the original 'Green Goddess' ^^ up top ... But here's a 'New Blue' MKIII.  



A good friend of mine had one of the Mamod locos years ago.  :)

I always fancied one when I built 1:24n3 cars, but alas I had not discovered 2' yet & 32mm gauge seemed a bit narrow !  L:

& yes Robs one had the proto. "waddle" !  :shocked:



:f:

This has got a few extra bits of valve gear and cylinders than you would expect !

Royal Bavarian State Railways (K├Âniglich Bayerische Staatsbahn) AA I class locomotive No.1400. 
Designed by CME Richard von Helmholtz and built in 1896,

The loco had a driven axle and a 'dolly axle' (Hilfsachse) to assist starting, 
which was lowered into place by a steam cylinder, and lifted again after the train was underway. 

Apparently very economical, though technically complex.

Springfield Railway Locomotive No. 1 "The Dinky". 
Alternately called "Old Glory". 

Often misnamed and misspelled Dingy (Dinghy), it was a very rare and perhaps unique Porter Locomotive 2-4-4 build#xxx 1888, 
formerly of the Michigan Central Railroad,
that was intended to transport managers and shareholders around the property which included more than 60 miles of private track. 

This was standard gauge and attached to the Halifax & South Western line (prior to 1902 called the Nova Scotia Central Railway). 

When not transporting officials, it was more often used to shunt empty log flat cars around the Davison lumber mill in Hastings Nova Scotia. 

No. 1 was not likely used for any passenger service beyond the Springfield RR limits,
which joined the H&SW at Hastings Junction, 1 mile south of Springfield, NS. 

This loco had a toilet, running water and an ice font on board. 
In this photo, the loco is decorated with flags and bunting in conjunction with one of many large company picnics the DLC sponsored, attended by over 1000 people in 1907.

"Dinky" was not a colloquial name. 
The Porters were small locos often used for mining and logging railways and in general terms, were called Porter Dinky throughout North America. 

Man in the cab door is Dr Charles Harold Dickson, one the Davison Company doctors, from Pictou Nova Scotia. 
He left in 1914 at the start of WW1 and entered the medical services in Belgium.

The French really did have some strange ideas about what a loco should look like....
