Couldn't find a suitable topic already so posting here ...

Would love to see this 1863 Blackburn Agricultural engine in 1:1 scale -- minus the device on the back & with a side-platform stoker added it would make a neat steam-locomotive (the treads mesh with the sleepers for cog-traction)

1/16th scale steel model ...

Might be useful on mountain railways, up steep slopes which normal engines can't handle.  They often use a rack system anyway.

Weaver:
Now what you need on that is:

1. A lengthened front end with two tiny wheels,

2. A zig-zag funnel with a cone on top,

3. A driver with Mk.9 goggles on his top hat,

4. Two of them to have a drag race.... :wacko:
