request for locomotives


Recommended Posts

To all modellers, greetings

If anyone feels up to the challenge, I think that two old time American Locomotives would be nice.   Specifically Union Pacific's 119 and Central Pacific's Jupiter.  

below are links to a series of pictures of the 2.   for scale. the driver wheels are 5 feet tall (152.4 cm)

Jupiter burned wood and had a balloon stack,  119 burned coal and had a tall black stack.    

Both were 4-4-0 locomotives

It may not be possible to reproduce the exact artwork on the tenders and sand domes.

119 had huge counterweights on the drive wheels,  Jupiter did not.

these are the original colors, and Locos were built from original plans
