What a great pic. Gerold !

If memory serves,
I have seen this or a similar image at some point,
in my research on the Internal Combustion ten wheeler.

Thanks for sharing,

Don

I had go at building a 4mm scale version,

but converted to narrow gauge, 9mm track gauge.





I made a video here:-

Now after watching the video, with this thing operating,
looking like the old prototype photographs (BTW, great model !) ...

I wonder how those guys would have further
developed the loco when in regular ? service.


I guess, at least she would have got some sort of canopy or cab,
to protect the crew from the blistering desert sun.
 
And at least some marginal safety + convenience appliances,
steps, handrails, bell, maybe even a headlight.

This is one of those rare times I wish I modeled the postwar era,

and I'd for certain model something like that.


Of course, if I did, I'd have to model a bunch of foamers

taking photos and video of it.

In the last days, I have worked through
several boxes with derelict steamers,
to find a suitable victim for butchering.

My idea is a small 2-8-0 or 4-6-0
with space for a small gearbox + can motor,
to be mounted low on the last axle.

Haven't yet found something that fits my needs.
A PFM Western Maryland 2-8-0 is in my mind....

Where have a put it ?
