Very nice Charles. The J3 is a pretty awesome piece of work. Seeing the two side by side really highlights how big some of those US locos were. Scale issues apart as this would only render the US loco even larger relative to the UK one.

QUOTE (Ozzie21 @ 27 Oct 2008, 13:15) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>neil, yes they were quite large in real term about 130ft long coupler to coupler, weighed in about 375t with roughly 68,300lbs of tractive effort. The poor old Jubliee had no chance.
The J3 ws a basket case when i got and had to put back together and then painted. The wheels were the last job and I think it's taken about two years to do those.
I don't know why I bought an LMS Jubilee as BR is my normal steam period. Ialso have an LNER Blue A4 so maybe I'll have to have a steam museum and run excursions.

I bought the BR Jubilee but was very tempted by the LMS one. It was the paint job that attracted me. I usually go for BR green but I do like the LMS red.
