Hello Frank,
This model was developed with the solicited advisement of the Pennsy historical society.  They desired that it have the prototypical drive system.  Therefore, only the front engine is articulated.   In spite of that, BLI engineering was able to get it to run on no less than 22" r.

Petey,
That's a NON Prototypical issue tho. AS these Pennsy locomotives WERE NOT Articulated, at all! They were "Duplex Steam" Locomotives....They were rigid framed, locos that had the driver split up between ridged mounted cylinders, to give "extra" steam power to spin each "set" individually.....They aren't considered to be Mallets, OR Articulated Steam, they are all in a class of their own.....Called "Duplexes"

You're correct, Frank.  My Q2 has NO articulation.

Frank,
NICE work! They look awesome.....Now if I can get my shop back to somewhat work-able shape to continue on those I have started and or start those I have planned   I get that far, I'd have it made!

Nice to see you stop in nsho and say hello. For me a few Lehigh Valley Camelbacks have lined up at the Frankford roundhouse waiting assignment. Pacific 2004 is scheduled for the evening run of the Black Diamond to Buffalo. The two Mikados await a large west bound freight.

These would be a bit out of place on my layout, but I like camelback locomotives. Very nice models Frank. What is your current roster of these?

My layout changes from 1950's ERIE / D&H to 1970's EL / D&H when I get the whim. For the 1950's I have three steam engines. The Coal company leases a CNJ engine, so maybe a CNJ camelback might be just the thing. I'd love to have an ERIE L1 0-8-8-0 but it doesn't fit the time period I model. The Lehigh Valley project sounds interesting.

I was very fortunate in the last year to receive two of the TYCO Pacifics in Crescent Limited markings.  Here they are posed nose to nose.

This is the original model offered in the 1960s.  I love the black smokebox.  This became available for a good rate on eBay.

This is the 1970s version.  This was a gift from a friend for my birthday.  
Lighter green, silver smokebox, red roof.  I also have passenger cars for these.

Hello Frank,
Have you ever seen one of these?  It is sheet brass and has a fine cast brass chassis.  You can tell it's a model of #6110.

Hi Frank,  
The AC-9 is a Yellowstone.  It is an International Models #101.  It has about 65 detail parts added.  
 
The T-1 is not a Bowser.  Both engine & tender are sheet brass.  The chassis is brass.  This model is of the first of the two experimental engines.  Bowser/Penn Line models later series.
I have had a great deal of trouble trying to establish the maker.  Best id so far, is that it is a Tetsudo from the '50s.

That is a handsome engine. It would look great speeding a train across south Jersey.

Both of my D&H Alco switchers are in service now.
 
They are good pullers for all of the local work that needs to be done.
