1885-1888 N&W bought (or built) 12 0-6-0's in classes R, P and S (series
129-140). They had 50" drivers and the second driver was offset to the rear.
They are pictured on page 137 of Prince's book. These are the only N&W 0-6-0's I

Subject: Very small N&W 0-6-0?
Folks, I have a little puzzle..
I recently purchased an old Bachmann HO scale 0-6-0, thinking it was a Spectrum
model. When I got it, I realized that it's much smaller. The drivers are about
43" diameter, the overall wheelbase is only 10', and the middle driver is offset
to the rear 6" of center. I can find no prototype locomotive on either Southern
or the Danville & Western, my two primary roads. Since I also have a little bit
of N&W on my layout, I was wondering.. did the N&W ever have anything that
small? At this point, I don't care about anything other than the wheelbase and
diameter, as I will have to build the rest of the loco anyway. Was there a
suitable N&W prototype?
