NP A Class

Just as a heads up, over on Train Board there is a thread in which a kit for a NP A Class might go into production: http://www.trainboard.com/grapevine/showthread.php?149090-NP-A-1-loco-feasability This would be the Timken 4 Aces, which saw action on alot of railroads, including the Pennsy 8). It ran around the USA in 1930, just perfect for my operating scheme. Also of interest, the Timken's tender was very close to the NYC's Hudson for all those Hudson fan out there.

We are still trying to get enough people interested to justify making the model.  To my knowledge, this will be a very limited run by GHQ.  Email Keith Lyons if interested.  Email link is on trainboard

The A class is 2600-2611.  The A1 was the timken engine.

Thanks, the basic boiler might become a base for a Timken bash.
