I KNEW that Duane would have the historical background on this. We are fortunate to have his opinions and information here.
Like Herbie sayeth-"#*^~# you-this IS the real one"
And what I have been saying for many years-"this IS the prototype"...that will really make them holler, kind of like "My model is missing 2 rivets, well let's see YOURS"!

I think that would be a neat line to model. Big old K locos and a connect with Mexican NG...Most of the big Mexican NG railroads had large 2-8-2's (even one ex D&RGW mike) and even 3 foot gauge 2-6-6-2's, not compact ones like Uintah Mallets, but big old hogs! Yes, you could probably get carried away modeling this and well you should. Go for it!


It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
