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. :eek:

How about a Garratt!

This is apparently some sort of MOW equipment. :D

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?:D

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!

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

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.....:smokin: Who do I bribe at BLI to get a mini version?:D

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:

Wow! Thank you GRJ, those are such great looking engines! Particularly in the D&H livery....I'm drooling on my keyboard right now.
Had I known then what I know now I'd have kicked the wife out of her craft room (yeah right) and turned it into my O gauge empire!

All I can do is hope we'll eventually see the same in N.
But I'm not holding my breath.

On that note here's another one I'll surely never see in N scale.
That black over red reeeaaaallly appeals to me:

I haven't been able to get online much lately but ran across this last night....

This is a brass and wood model designed to represent Egypt's first loco for it's first railway circa approx 1854. It's a one-off at "1 1/2" scale currently housed in a museum:

Ladies and gents I give you the Perseverance!

I've always been a Stourbridge Lion fan myself. This is a Lionel O scale model based on a full-size replica. :)

I've been curious about Con Cor as I run across their rolling stock on occasion. Time to start a letter writing campaign to bring back the Goose!!

GNfan that Lion is really cool, kinda dewitt-clinton-ish. Did the levers/rods move on the Lionel version? That would be something to see!

I think I've figured out why they named the scales the way they did.

O the variety! O the choices!

Nothing to see here folks. No steam for you!!:rolleyes::D

Here's another euro engine I'd like to see in N: Henschel from the 80's
