Title: Mallets on a preserved logging narrow gauge line.
Post by: Painkiller on August 18, 2017, 03:17:04 PM
I know I posted this a few years ago, but I tweaked it out a bit more. It still has that "charm" of hand held VHS camera, common  some 10 years ago. I hope you like it. I was thinking of making an americanized version of this but never got around to do it and once 4-6-0-s came along. I picked more of them than the engines I really needed.  Anyway, I hope you find this inspireing. The gauge is 3 swedish ft (891 mm) instead of 914 mm in US 3 ft gauge. Originally the line was 91 kilometers long, had three Mallets, of two are preserved and running whilw I shot this, now both of them are to undergo restauration and will be back steaming in a few years.

Thanks for posting.
Looks like a feasible kitbash from the 2-6-6-2.
