Pioneer Valley Live Steamers
« on: August 11, 2013, 02:20:36 PM »
I wasn't able to attend the picnic this year as we were down in Massachusetts at a meet of the Pioneer Valley Live Steamers.
Here is a link to a YouTube video showing several of my friends running my really narrow gauge ( 3 - 1/2" gauge) London and Northeastern Railways Atlantic.

That sure is a nice looking engine, Keith. Would you happen to know under which CME it was designed?

Steve, it is an Ivatt Atlantic designed for the Great Northern as modified by Sir Nigel Gresley as the C-1 class.

Thanks. Bet it was a ballast scorcher.
