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. :bg:

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' !

:moose:

Si.

A happy reader ! :bg:

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 !
