Sam;

You will love the pulling power of the HLW Dunkirk. In the photo below, all nine cars have "coal" loads (plastic coal mostly). They are fully loaded, no lift-out loads. The grades on that garden railway were stiff in places, but the Big John handled them without any strain.


Best wishes,
David Meashey

Nice pic Dave! Would love to see that same train with some of your Roundhouse live steamers with a nice plume above them! Mike

That curved trestle shrouded in foliage looks fantastic and mysterious. I'm sure that's the centerpiece of that particular railroad cause it makes for some great pictures!

Sadly, that railroad is no more. The owner passed away. Fortunately, his son salvaged all he could, but has moved it to another state. I am not sure whether things have been set up again.
