Yeah, that's probably not one you'd want in N anyway. It'd go missing more often than not and wind up in the wife's, erm, sock drawer.

How about a Garratt!

This is apparently some sort of MOW equipment.

Update: These were apparently fairly common! Google Image Search "Inspection Locomotive".

I'd love to see that in N scale! Reminds me of the old 'you put your chocolate in my peanut butter!' commercials...

You put your boiler in my Overton!

Speaking of ol' Rube.......

Some might consider this one ugly but I'd buy an N scale version in a heartbeat.

Wonder if it's got a hemi?

Here's another I'd like to see in N scale. I see it is/was made by Ace and Hornby at one point.....

I sure wish I had the space to go with a larger scale, I am definitely missing out here in tiny land!

You've probably already seen this but I'm keeping my fingers crossed they'll release it in N.....

Not only have I seen it, but I have a couple of A-B-A sets, one in PRR and the other in Delaware & Hudson.

The link is the spookshow.net entry for a Baldwin Shark made for Bachmann circa 2001:

http://www.spookshow.net/loco/euroshark.html

BTW: According to a Kalmbach book about diesels I have, Baldwins had a pneumatic M.U. system that was incompatible with EMDs and Alcos; so the railroads kept Baldwin A-B-A and A-B-B-A sets together.

That's an interesting read about the Bachmann version. I'm always too late to the party!

My favorite modern-ish diesels up until now have been RS3s but that Baldwin..... Who do I bribe at BLI to get a mini version?

GRJ, not that I like having the knife twisted, but can you post a pic of yours in it's D&H trim? I am particularly fond of their paint scheme...

In the meantime here's another I'd love to see shrunk down from O:
