Tuesday Ten Wheelers Louisiana & Northwestern

November 16, 2010

Here’s another member of this handsome roster of locomotives operated by the Louisana & Northwestern. Oddly, most of their roster of steamers has been produced in HO scale brass in the last 30 years. They are nice looking examples of shortline oil burners though, I can easily see why. It’s also of note to mention the small Vanderbilt tender, not a common tender outside of GN or SP.

    Lots of other roads used vanderbilt tenders on certain engines. The ones that come right to mind right now are the ACL, SAL, NC&St.L, C&O and the UP but there are more.

    This engine is not too far removed from a Bachmann Spectrum 63″ driver 4-6-0. And Spectrum made both coal and oil fuel vanderbilt tenders that could could behind this engine.

    And in closing, and being from Louisiana …… it’s good that a few Louisiana-centered models were released ….. instead of “yet another” PRR engine in the endless parade of PRR models that are seemingly always there and of no use to the southern model railroader.

      I agree 100%. There is WAY too many PRR model out there on the market. The only nice part is that the livery is small enough to not have to waste too much paint covering it up!
