Im more into building model boats than engines,but at e recent model engineering show i attended,I was asked by a friend`s son if I could build a model of the 10 wheeler steam loco used in the old TV show `Casey Jones`.
The `Cannonball Express`,looks like a Baldwin 10 wheeler loco,with the bulbous stack. I was wondering if anyone on here could advise me of where i could get plans for this type of engine,or give me any details of the class of loco.
On investigation,I now know that Casey Jones was actually John `Casey Jones` Luther,who was a real life enginner on I believe the Illinois railroad circa 1880.
Presumably then the `Cannonball` was based on a real train.
Many thanks to anyone who can help with info or availability of plans for a 4-6-0 loco of this type..

Thanks both for the leads...ill look into them.
Scale depends on the size of the original,but considering it will hopefully be a live steam working model,probably around 1/12 scale. I usually build model boats to that.
Many Thanks.
