I would show you guys N scale American style fantasy railroad by a friend of mine, Mr. Y. Tohnishi.  The railroad name is Far West Happy Line (FWH).

Attached some scanned pictures of a super Garratt engine.

JAM convention was held on 8/19 to 8/21/2022 in Tokyo, Japan and he joined it as a modeler’s presentation.
(JAM means Japan Association of Model Railroaders)

Here is the Super Garratt engine applied 2 x Atlas mallet mechanism and scratch built by him.

Sorry I cannot attach a movie of it due to large size of 36MB.

Now I could attach the movie as a topic of my Facebook below.

It could pull 110+ MTL 40' cars at that time, but could do 160 cars according to his previous test.


Cheers,

I have seen sketches of a similar locomotive, but think this is the first time I've seen one built, in any scale.

The N&W should have had one.

That loco from the meet blows my mind.


And I always get teary when I see the Humvees.  Not because I served or have a thing for military trains, but because my Father worked briefly for a DC-area engineering firm between his time in the Navy and being recruited by NSA, and that firm was part of the Humvee design team.  He used to bring early concept drawings of it home (I probably shouldn't be saying this).  I wish I knew where they went, but I'm not done going through his papers.  [size=78%]I did find a set of architectural drawings of the SCOTUS if any lawyer types are looking for decor for their office.[/size]
