Over the past year I've developed some love of relatively unique locomotives and rolling stock. Here's a sample of some of my favorites

Rotary Snow Plow (Still figuring out how I wanna paint it)


Atlas N Scale Shay




Con-Cor N Scale Galloping Goose




All 3 Together With A Loco Shed I Just Assembled

Hi Aunuli,

Great photos. I’ve always admired the Shays for their less conventional motion, while the rotary snow plough reminds me of a certain James Bond film, or perhaps even movie, where a baddie became an 007 quip! Have fun with the painting.

 
The star of the show for me though is that simply lovely Galloping Goose, as I seem to have developed a thing for rail cars.
 

Out of interest, can you get finescale N gauge track, as the rail height seems as large as the wheels!
 

Bill

Bill,

I can get more properly scaled N scale track but as I have a large number of vintage models, the flanges on the wheels tend to hit the ties/sleepers below the rails on more appropriately scaled track. As such I am for the time being sticking with the less accurate but easier to use larger rail profile that I have found to be largely standard at least here in the US.

It also doesn't help that the Galloping Goose front truck/bogie has some of if not the smallest wheels I have ever seen on an N scale model. The only other model I can think of with similar sized wheels would be my vintage Bachmann 4-4-0. Everything else I have has at least twice the diameter of wheels

With thanks,
Aunuli

Thanks, I put it together a few days ago. I want to paint it here soon but I need to get the paints for it.
