So the Bachmann Mallet is a model of a prototype that was never built?

Big deal!

There were many 2-6-6-2T logging mallets built for standard gauge track that looked much like the Bachmann Mallet.

There were also 2-8-8-2 tender Mallets proposed but never built for the D&RGW and the C&S.

There was even a Bayer Garrett proposed but never built for a logging RR in British Columbia, Canada.

Lots more possibilities for future models.

Will I ever own a Bachmann Mallet? I don't know. I sure like the looks of it. I don't care about the socket/electronics in it as I would have to strip them out anyway.

Time will tell.
