Mike,

Thank you, I appreciate it.  I sent photos to Stephen to post of my latest project--spread out over many months.  This was for CNJ 113.  I hope you find it interesting--a three chime step top whistle bell.

Here are some of my drawings for the project. These are not the best quality pictures. I took them with a camera phone.
Nice drawning of the future WW&F #11! Do anyone have any photos of BS&R #7 dressed up in WW&F #11 lettering by using photo-shop?

The B&SR 7 and WW&F 7 really arent very close matches. Outside valve gear, different cab, different tank, different domes, ect.

I *think* Matt meant WW&F #7 photoshopped as #11.

And, just for the record, B&SR no. 7 is nearly 7 tons heavier than WW&F no. 7.

It will be a replica of WW&F #7. If you can find any info for that, that will be the same as #11.

Well technically the locomotive has no size because it does not exist.......yet. The locomotive when built will be built to as close to the original WW&F #7 as we can get. Therefore the measurements will be about the same as the 7. 7 had 33" drivers, roughly 40" diam boiler, 18' wheel base, was 30' 7" long, 10' fall and about 7' wide. It had 11x14 cylinders, weighed 56,000lbs, and had a tractive effort of 8300lbs.

Well, the extant #'s 7 & 8 HAVE been labeled as MNGRR #'s 7&8, IIRC.
I know they've also been painted B&H durring thier time at MNGRR.
(So you guys are BOTH right.  ;) )

I hear ya on that.
But remember,... whatever the loco, it's present owners are PART of that history!

(Hence, WW&F # 10 is NOW an actual WW&F locomotive. ;) )

Sorry I like to honor history more then the present.

That means you always refer to WW&F 9 as Sandy River #5? ;)
j/k..

I agree..nothing wrong with saying MNGRR 7 and 8..
that is their current status afterall..

WW&F #11 weighs about 250 pounds at present, and could fill a (somewhat large) crate.  That's because it's two pony truck wheels (no tires), a headlight, a bell bracket, and a number plate.  Oh, and a few pounds of paper drawings, plus a bunch of files on people's computers (the files don't weigh anything measurable).

Much smaller than B&SR #7.

The weight on #11 just went up. The tires for the pilot truck showed up. They had them made at the same time as the tires for the rail car.
