    This is a Gloorcraft kit. It was supposed to be Delaware&Hudson caboose, but it didn't quite look like one. I just finished the construction. Once it's painted, it and the loco will get lettered for the Shinnecock Hills Lumber Co.

    Nice caboose! I mean, the caboose on the end of the train... Be careful making that statement around strangers, and especially the ladies at work! :)

    That articulated tank loco looks cool! Tell me something about the prototype!

    The Loco is a Mantua, one of the 2-6-6-2T's that were standard gauge versions of the 3'gauge Uintah railroad. I removed the square tanks and replaced them with the wrap around tank from a Model Die Casting 0-6-0T. The loco cab is also from the MDC.
    A very similar engine was used by the Feather River Lumber co., and Weyerhauser also had a similar engine. I used photos of these to modify the Mantua. I also used a considerable number of brass castings to "dress it up".
    Sorry, it's not for sale, after all, it's articulated.
