WW&F #10
« on: August 12, 2015, 08:24:47 PM »
Greetings,

I've only made one visit to Maine, but was impressed with what I saw.  I'm interested in some dimensions on your #10, specifically the wheelbase and the cab dimensions.  Is anyone able to help out?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Hi Matt,

I don't know if the exact information you are looking for is available online. This subject has come up before in the forum, and you may want to check out:

And there is a replica of #10 in 7.5" gauge:

Thanks for the help.  I traded a few e-mails with the individual from PA that was listed in the earlier forum posting, but that seems to have gone cold.  I'm really interested in the cab dimensions, and it would be helpful if the drawing that was posted has some basic dimensions on it.  Like the wheelbase, length overall, bunker/tank size, and cab.  Anyone have info on these measurements?  Thanks again for the responses.

Check in Moody's "The Maine Two-Footers." There were several tables of data on most of the locomotives.

Unfortunately, the Maine Two Footers won't include date on our No 10.

If you're able to read a CAD file, one of our regular members and volunteers has drawn No 10 electronically.  We can put you in touch with him.

Jason, I'm sure I can figure out how to read a CAD file and will get any needed software to get good prints of the locomotive.  I would greatly appreciate it if you could put me in touch with your member that has the file(s).

Thanks to all, the members of this forum have been very helpful.
