In the meantime and because I wasn't quite sure what we could pull off in the house I managed to acquire a couple of small porters since I wasn't sure what kind of space might be available. These might still find a home on the larger layout shuttle cars between mines or something similar. These are neat little engines and if we don't get around to doing something bigger then I can always do something smaller and store it away as long as it fits that 45"x 23" footprint.
|The 0-4-2 Porter. Both of these feature a saddle tank for the water, it certainly bulks them up a little bit.|
|The 0-4-0 Porter, very similar to the 0-4-2. Again this one comes with a saddletank but I'm not sure where the coal or wood is going to reside!|
