Yes, the arched cab-window is def. the Glover signature.
I think I see a Porter builders plate, just below the stack on Argent Lumber No.3
And YEAH ... That tender has 'the look' !
Well ... That lovely new book came in.
I'll probably have more to say about it in a while.
But what is there to say ?
It is a GREAT book !
I am totally amazed at the shear variety of designs constructed by Glover, who only made a total of about 200 locomotives.
Yet almost each one pictured in the book, and there are LOADS of truly excellent photos, is different & unique in one way or another.
Big, medium, small, standard, narrow gauge, & even narrower gauge, tender, tank etc. etc.
And all very fine looking locos indeed, with that certain 'something' !
A happy reader !
Had a bit of a look at this add on kit for the Bachmann 2-4-4-2 from Backwoods Miniatures, I may be insane enough to go for a Mallet on my line !
But the general 'tank' layout looks interesting for a Mogul 'T' conversion.
Damn lot of rivets though !
