Baldwin 60000 in N Scale?

Part of my trip to Philly a few weekends back landed me in one of my childhood fav places, the Franklin Institute, where in the basement they have on display the Baldwin 60000.  Now granted it had a short lived tour on the US rails and was never purchased by any RR due to size, complexity and bursting steam pipes.  Has this monster/beauty ever been made into a model in N?  Any other scales?

Another great touring steam locomotive to be produced would be the Timken Four Aces. I actually could include this on my future layout as it fits perfectly in my time frame!

Most of the high pressure locos are ones that I haven't heard of before:
