I did !

I thought it looked really interesting.
I searched on Google for 'Glover Machine Works'...
...& your review at Freerails came up !
Musta missed that one in the books Forum.

Bit rare & pricey here in Britain.
But happened to get lucky & score a perfect copy for £13.24p !

Dave the postman will probably launch it into the mailbox on Monday !

I have great expectations from what I hear about it.
I don't have that much locomotive info in book form.

NICE !

:moose:

Si.

Great painting on the cover.
It looks like that loco has the '1-axle + 1-truck tender', by what I can tell.
Or does it ?
Can't quite totally tell actually ? ... Mmm ...

I'm pretty sure that someone (maybe Flying Zoo?) made a brass model of the Glover loco shown on the cover painting.

Hi EBT :wave:

Here's a 2-6-0 Flying Zoo apparently made a model of.

Argent Lumber No.3

:moose:

That old 2-6-0 may just be a Porter. Glover locos seemed to have arched cab windows. But whoever built her, she's a neat little lokie and would probably make a fine 35n2 mogul. That tender is just too cool for school!

Howdy Woodie :cb:

Yes, the arched cab-window is def. the Glover signature.

I think I see a Porter builders plate, just below the stack on Argent Lumber No.3

And YEAH ... That tender has 'the look' !

Well ... That lovely new book came in. :bg:

I'll probably have more to say about it in a while.

But what is there to say ?

It is a GREAT book !

I am totally amazed at the shear variety of designs constructed by Glover, who only made a total of about 200 locomotives.

Yet almost each one pictured in the book, and there are LOADS of truly excellent photos, is different & unique in one way or another.

Big, medium, small, standard, narrow gauge, & even narrower gauge, tender, tank etc. etc.

And all very fine looking locos indeed, with that certain 'something' !

:moose:

Si.

A happy reader ! :bg:

Had a bit of a look at this add on kit for the Bachmann 2-4-4-2 from Backwoods Miniatures, I may be insane enough to go for a Mallet on my line !



But the general 'tank' layout looks interesting for a Mogul 'T' conversion.

Damn lot of rivets though !
