I've been building a model of a 35 ton narrow gauge diesel loco manufactured by Atlas, so I've looked at every prototype photo of an Atlas diesel that I could find--and they all look pretty much the same. I began to wonder why that was, how the 35 ton narrow gauge loco looks almost identical to the 50 and 65 ton standard gauge locos, even though they are so much heavier. Where is all that weight? I'm beginning to think the weight must be in the frame and below it in the form of concrete?

I see the same thing with GE--the 44 and 45 tonners look the same as the 70 ton loco.

What am I missing? Where is that weight?

Cheers,
