Dear Bob,

I think what you really meant to say was:

"Found a photo in Railpictures.net of a 3' gauge 2-8-0 prototype that would make a good model in On30."

There are some differences from the On30 Consolodations in the catalog, though. 

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik

Joe,

     I said what I meant,  very tongue in cheek of course.

According to info on the web, the loco was originally built for service in Guatemala, but has done tourist train duty in Colorado and Alaska, See:

This is a dumb question, but is it oil fired?

Bob,

My original reply was going to be,

"Hey, nice model and diorama".

Georgetown Loop 40 and 44 were built by Baldwin for the International Railways of Central America (IRCA), a 36 inch gauge line owned by United Fruit.  Nos. 40 and 41 were built in 1920, and Nos. 42 - 44 in 1921.  They were always oil fired, and have the following dimensions:  38 inch drivers, 16 x 20 inch cylinders, engine weight of 93,400 pounds.  I believe they were built with slide valves but with Walschaert valve gear, and later rebuilt by IRCA with piston valves.

#40 is a beautiful engine, when in Alaska, Colorado or Central America.
