    It's unreal how hard it is to find info on 1850-1890 loco's. I'm talking specifically about southern Romanian region of Wallachia. Very strange, I know.......but when is the last time anyone seen a locomotive from that area & era? I'm just curious is all.
    I've spent longer than I want to admit searching and all I come up with are currently active loco's.

    I may just have to change my ideas a bit cause I'm still unable to
    "gather intel."

    I have to ask. What prompted your interest in this particular exotic location and time period? I'm intrigued.

    Well, umm...........I have never in my lifetime seen anyone model that region. I thought about doing it in N scale on a door. Of coarse it would be a logging community as thats what they did in that region & era.
    I'm also tempted to scratch build this..and place it on a hillside

    Interesting! I was just wondering if you had some personal link to The Old Country or something. I'm imagining lots of mountain scenary. A castle like that would make an impressive model! Best wishes on your search for more infomation!

    For modelling purposes, I think any old German/Austrian stock would be close. Even old English or American -- in HO Bachman's deWitt Clinton, Lafayette, or John Bull without the cowcatcher.

    Nor have I. Modelling before the late 19th century is quite sparse, and modelling Romania is even rarer. Actually, have I ever seen a single layout depicting Romania?
