Not sure were to post this so it is in the general subforum now.

Found this document online of the building of a G-scale Garratt.
http://www.garrattmaker.com/images/home/makingofmengo.pdf

On the homepage of that website is also a zip-file download with detail photo's of the prototype. (Only recommended for the freaks) :glad:

Sadly the drawings they talked about are not included.

Nope, no Fairlies...in fact, the Garratt just sits in a display case now along with other much-loved locos which won't operate on the new layout.

I love ALL Garratt's.

They are what the US should have built, instead of articulateds IMHO.

Woodie--nice touch with the name on the cab side.

Hi Si.

I have thought about that. I have recently bought a mallet kind of loco. It is a rivarossi 1340. But it looks like a tough job to convert it to a garratt.

But who knows, one day...

As I understand, there is one in the US, on a private RR in Texas: http://www.sa-transport.co.za/trains/narrow-gauge/ng_info_pictures/ngg13-50_texas_th.JPG
