Thumbs up 4-8-8-4 G scale Big Boy



We just got this baby in for a customer It's almost 5' long. I don't have any other pictures of it. I'm afraid to even look at it, since it's almost $4,000.00.

That is huge! I thought the O scale version was big and expensive, but that is just rediculous! I guess they have like a whole acre of land dedicated to running that thing on; I can only imagine it's minimum curve radius

Yeah, it's an absolute monster, weighing in at over 65 lbs. I'd say a minimum 20' diameter.

LOL, sounds like it would be the perfect train to have running around the Sequoia that you are using as a Christmas tree
