10 years ago we used to go crazy hunting the web just for pics of No 2...

Easy to imagine this running in Maine.

Just put a "1" before the (2) and some Janey style couplers and you're golden.  I so want to see a recreation of #6 or SRRL #24 on the line.  No problems tackling the "mountain" with that on the head end!

w. It is easy for me to imagine that it's running up the Sandy River valley from Farmington into Strong. Especially with that SR&RL stye caboose. ;)

It's a real Baldwin...and unless you look closely, you won't notice the Belpaire firebox or the fact that is a 4-6-2!

Sort of a shrunken K4s! She does look pretty big by Maine 2 foot standards. But, she is pretty!

I notice that they are building a copy of the SR&RL's #10 and #23. The #2 looks to be about the same size as the bigger 2-6-2's.
