Florida East Coast fan (Yup, the railroad's worth me spelling it out.),
That was the orginal concept.

pdlethbridge,
That place hasn't made half the stuff they've released for about a year or more!

I wish they would. A New Haven FL-9 will cause me to go crazy- again.

"The H-4 is not a C&O "version."  It is a C&O locomotive  I think that the USRA 2-6-6-2 MAY be a variant of it.  (Which could explain why the C&O did not like the ones they received!)"

Gene



   So true.  There have been numerous debates over why they wouldn't like the USRA engine since it's so close to their H-4 design.  I suspect they just didn't like the idea of another engine with some differences when the USRA could have just granted them an exception and let them have more of their own design, or better yet in their opinion, the USRA could have adopted theirs as the standard.  The were, IIRC, the largest user of the type even then.  The 2-8-8-2 was an N&W design, why they just didn't standardize on the C&O 2-6-6-2 is something of a mystery.

     Wow, those are both nice engines and I wasn't familiar with either of them.  I'd need at least a pair of the 4-6-0 myself, just to get my son to quit complaining about having none.

   I'd like to get at least one FL9 that's really nice just to run it with my older Marx one.  It'd be a nice snapshot of how much things have advanced just like current production Intermountain cars with old Marx cars in the same consist.

Welcome to the club, Rashputin. There are about 13 other modelers like you and me I know are waiting for and wishing for an FL-9.

I will keep wishing, and hopefully, one day... The FL-9s will rise.

Anyway,
Those tank engines are hot, too bad I don't have wishes to incorporate them into any form of my layout. Interesting though, to say the least. I'm not all that surprised to hear CN locomotives are in Steam Town, but I was surprised to see one, I've never seen that type of Tank Engine before.

this seems to be popular....Bl-2, This is a very strange locomotive but is a beauty, and a slug or calf!
their, you will make a lot of switching fans(like myself) extremely happy! The Bl-2, like many models, is a classic that is not around anymore for Ho scale. make a come back for those beautiful diesels!

Actually, the BL-2, or branch line loco, was a crossover between cab units, like the F units, to the GP, or general purpose, units. It allowed better back vision that the F units couldn't offer. There time of use was pretty limited as Geeps soon came out. The BAR, B&M, Monon, And WM were big users. There are only 5 left in museums now.

I would imagine you know, but Life Like Proto 2000 did these back in the 80s. Great little runners, not the best detail but still nice. If you want to buy one in B&M send me a email, it dosen't fit the prototype any more. friscoryan1522@hotmail.com

PD, actually Western Maryland # 82 is still alive and well in use on the West Virginia Central Railroad.  In fact it is here in Elkins this very minute pulling the Salamander up Cheat Mountain!  Big salamanders in this part of the world!   Grin     Stephen
