  1. This blue train is marked (2-6-0+0-6-2 Garratt, for heavy duty rotary snow plow jobs) number 4, and joins the family of similar mid-1880's engines such as (4-2-4, for military transport) green 1, (4-4-0, for freight) yellow 2, and (4-6-0, for passengers) red 3. The Garratt-type steam locomotive is perfect for use on the mountainous terrain of Colorado Rocky Mountains, with it's double steam locomotive pistons sets. (Before anyone says anything about Garratt loco's not being ever sold into the North American market, I'll say it's an experimental prototype to help with a motive power shortage. It may have been seen by the owner as a economical way of sending one locomotive to do the job of two.) This steam powered rotary snowplow was inspired by the real-world Denver and Rio Grande's narrow gauge plow "OY", as now seen on the Cumbres and Toltec RR in New Mexico / Colorado. I've decided to name my plow "YO" in tribute to my inspiration, using this part from the original Toy Story sets on the tender as the marker. The roof of the front of the plow comes off to reveal the cab for the plow operator. (Yes, the front "blade" does spin around.) The rear of the plow features the coal tender with a ladder from the water tank-top down to the magnetic coupler. This engine was originally a SRW locomotive works product, (made by Anthony Sava and formerly available on Bricklink until LEGO sadly removed most of his models) I reworked the engine to have working pistons and side-rods plus a longer frame. This made it from 2-4-0+0-4-2 to a 2-6-0+0-6-2, among other smaller updates to the engine. The rear of the steam locomotive. This part in black goes on the cab walls (it's the number 4) A simple caboose, for the snow plow train. I used a pair interesting windscreen parts for the cupola windows. NOTES: The Garratt is already 100% finished, some of the parts for the plow and caboose are already found... doing a major reorganization of the parts supply, and am amazed at what I'm finding already!
