    Does anyone out there know if and what are the prototypes for MTH steam starter engines?

    I know the 2-8-0 is based on a Pennsy consolidation and the 0-4-0 is a B&O engine so this leads me to think that the other engines have prototypes as well. Specifically I am looking for the linage and approximate build dates of the prototypes of these models.
    2-6-0 Mogel
    4-6-0 20th century Ten Wheeler
    and the 4-6-0 19th century Ten Wheeler
    (are there any that I missed)

    Any help like probable builders would be great. Thank you in advance.

    Someone in another forum thinks the 2-6-0 is an Southern Pacific engine built by Baldwin c.1920.
    If anyone here cares.
    Still looking for the 4-6-0.
