[MOC] White Pass & Yukon (and Tweetsie, and Dollywood, etc.) s118 2-8-2 Narrow Gauge Locomotive

Recommended Posts

These were the most common engines produced during WWII, and are still fairly prevalent in steam railroadingĀ - a number of U.S. railroads either run them or have one in storage, and a few more are scattered throughout Australia and southeastern Asia. This particular example was modeled after White Pass & Yukon #190, which is currently still operatingĀ at the Tweetsie Railroad. However, it could be converted to any of the others with pretty minor cosmetic changes.

I'm considering doing some JNR 3'6" stuff over the holidays, but the loading gauge is almost as large as American standard gauge (just to put it in perspective, JNR cape gauge locomotives are typically about 9 feet, 6 inches wide; the American SP 4449 4-8-4 is an even 10' wide. So I'd essentially be producing standard gauge trains with narrow gauge wheels. Not sure how I feel about that, but I will look into it).

Is it wrong that I am presently about 25% done with another? :P I won't finish it until at least Tuesday - have to fly cross country tomorrow.
