Awesome! This might be the first locomotive I get from you. My dads side of the family is deeply rooted with the only 2-4-4-2 in the US: The "Skookum".

When I get home from school I'll post a picture and a little story maybe.

It's September. Freshmen year is here, but at least school with a sibling make it interesting...

My grandfather Arthur Hamilton was a friend of Charlie Maslow, the one who discovered and pulled up the "Skookum" from off it's side. My grandfather made and placed these signs along the Fire Service road heading out to the "Skookum" to allow drivers to get to the work site. This is the only known survivor of these helpful signs.
This was in the mid 60's when this was going on. For those that don't know, the Skookum is the only 2-4-4-2 in the U.S.A and is one of only two in the world.

*The more you know!*

The Sumpter Valley Railway/Unitah Railway Mallet would be interesting for NG. Started out with the side tanks then when the Sumpter Valley Railway bought the pair they removed the side tanks and gave them a tender! I have a LGB model of it, it's nearly 4ft long!
