Thanks for the instruction and inspiration, Tom.


Chip,

You are very welcome and I'm happy I got your firebox hot. 8)

This is one of my favorite locos.  The H-5 was of USRA design and had drivers a little larger than the more famous H-6, the last of which is in the B&O Museum in Baltimore.  This old hog could really pull those coal hoppers up and down the mountains.  The painted, finished model ought to be an outstanding addition to the A&S as another example of a Central Florida railroad leasing needed steam power to lug heavy trains up the Ovalix.  Four miles an hour, five miles an hour, who cares!  Greg will have to keep his hands off of this one!


Judge,

This one will also be decaled for the C&O as the A&S RR is always willing to try new motive power. We have an unlimited supply of coal and BS.

Greg won't have the patience to pull the throttle two notches and leave it there.

Is this a new policy on the A&S?  Loco distancing for Greg?  :P

That is one beautiful locomotive.   :D  I can sure understand why the Judge likes it, wants it painted and in active service.  I can't wait to see the finished product.

I agree with the Judge on this loco,  I rebuilt a plastic version of this loco into a Rio Grande version a few years ago to see if I could.  http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=50426   Thanx Thom...  P.S.  I forgot I have an old (not very good) test run video Dick Elwell & I made of this model.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQuQHv1UeY0

Thom,

Your model is absolutely stunning. Well done sir.
