American Rail-Road Locomotive and Car
This model is based on an amalgam of American rail-road car vehicles, using the excellent photos and drawings in John H. White’s 2-volume book of the same name. This model was originally intended to partner the black Meccano steam loco of a few years ago, with a tender built from Army Set parts, but in the event it turned out a little oversized. The two-and-a-half-inch plate strikes again! The model was drawn carefully beforehand to get the proportions right, and it went together very quickly.
