Trying to find old humorous article from MRR.

Hey guys. I'm looking for an old "trackside photos" or similar pic from an ancient Model Railroader magazine.

It was essentially a kit bashed locomotive that had been done awfully. Had an "extension boiler" and a weird hybrid tender.

Any help? I kind of want to hang it on my workshop wall as a reminder...lol...

Best,

Chris

Do you have a clue as to the decade? This might take a while.

Welcome to the Forum! Glad to have you.

...aaand I just found and bought that issue on Amazon...

love those old MRR's. When I was a wee lad in the early 80's my mother worked at our local public library and would bring home stacks of them when they were discarded...
