[modeleng] Re: Loco identity

Hmmm, I think you're right, the top half looks freelance, but the lower 
levels look to have disproportionate attention to certain features, like 
the holes in the tender frames.

Also the latter (unpainted) bits of the valve gear look strange in 
comparison to the rest of the motion, as if done by two different people.

Use of horn castings on the tender and castings for the cylinders but 
perhaps not for the driving wheels seems strange.

I'm judging by the surroundings (and the loco) that the picture isn't from 
UK (or am I wrong) - location might help in determining the design.

Also what gauge is it?


Yours,


Rich.
