unfortunately, there is nothing "authenic" about the Lil' critter! ;)
it is 100% fictional..no real locomotive is even close..
Aristo made it out if Alco RS3 parts..

there are however real critters of the same general concept..
4 wheels, cab on one end..
like this:

but nothing with the specific cab and hood style of the Alco RS3.

I did create a "prototype photo" for the Lil' critter a few years ago!



but that photo is also pure fiction! :)

That is such an excellent job of photo retouching that, just for honesty, you should put a text label on it that it is not real.

thanks!
and yes..I should!
actually, its that photo that made me start labeling the photoshop jobs as fakes!

but apparently I never labeled the early ones!
I will fix it..

Thanks rw. Now that I'm at home (not at work) I can see it. Scot must be on some sort of no-fly list. Nice photoshop indeed.

back to the original question.... if they work




Alco/GE didn't spend much money on styling on their 18-25ton 2 axle units. The boxcab looks easiest.

Or, since you're making a new cab anyway - you could always go crazy..

Not than anybody would EVER attempt such a thing....
