Some Narrow Gauge Locomotives Have All the Character

September 26, 2008

Here’s a series of photographs from various North American narrow gauge operations. Most of these railroads were logging or mining operations.

outside frame 2-6-0

How about a Mexican Narrow Gauge outside frame 2-6-0 for starters? What a beauty, with plenty of character. I’d like to see this locomotive produced in On3 or On30 soon.


Or a pint-sized Forney? Look at those tiny trailing wheels.


Here’s a countless varation on the venerable H.K. Porter 0-4-0, I hope this may give you some ideas to re-detail your On30 bachmann model.


Here’s an excellent photo of a Shay logging locomotive, and look at all those extra details, from the huge pilot beam to the gypsy winch on the pilot, it would make an excellent kitbashing project.
