Little & Large

Post by Dad-1 »

I wonder what others have in the way of smallest loco to largest ?
Here are my two :-

A class "A" 2-6-6-4 HO model - think if it was 4 mm scale !!
Ruston DS48

The class "A" is under repair, damaged & missing grab rails being replaced and a
couple of unknown bits where I think something is missing.

Has anyone got any good large photos, or information on American biggies ?

There's probably photo links from this wiki article. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norfolk_a ... rn_A_Class
Being a very conventional type, I have a Rivarossi Big Boy, still running as well as ever at 51 year since purchase (An accident, I went in looking for an Athearn centre motor diesel chassis to put in an OO diesel body, and there it was for £25...)

Well, I suppose the Windhoff MPV would be technically two locos but still...

I do like Lancastrian's 'G' scale.
Just the thing for a nice garden layout.
