Cheers Baykal

You have just made my day!!!!!!!

They really are fantastic looking engines. its amazing what a huge difference tot he looks that little streamlined fairing makes.

For those of you who dont know. Vuncan foundry (USA) built about 80 of these for turkish railways. they worked along side a huge variety of loco's from german Kreigsloks to LMS/WD 8F's.

I would dearly love to do a model.

Thay are fantastic pictures too. some great shots for detail too.

They were really the last big US steam in regular use.

Where were the pictures taken?

Oah i wish i was there with a tape measure!!

once again thanks Baykal
