I believe a number of years ago, I saw an article in Trains about a club in
the UK that had an “A” and a “J” in 7 ½” scale. Absolutely beautiful. The
detail was amazing.

The 8 tons would become a much larger number if the model had a steel
boiler. I would also guess that a 15 in gauge J in steam would have had an
astronomical price tag. $500K would only put a dent in it. In the UK at
Stapleford Miniature Railway,
they operate a live steam NKP Berkshire and NYC Niagara on 10 1/4in gauge
track [1:5 scale]. Unfortunately no N&W J. Please see ==>

I assume the power plant is there for moving the loco off the trailer to the
display track. It makes a nice exhibition piece.

Don Guill, a machine shop owner in the Cincinnati area, built a custom
replica of 611. He displays it at special events, like the Train Festival
in Owosso. It has also appeared at VMT. Don is semi-retiring, and is
selling this model.

The engine and tender are 36'5" long, 64" high, and 38" wide and it is 15"
gauge. It weighs 16,000 pounds, and has a 135 HP Cummins diesel engine with
a hydrostatic hydralic drive. It also has a sound system, generates
smoke, and a forward camera.

Moving it requires a trailer, and he is including that in the package. The
trailer itself is gorgeous, wrapped in a Bob Lyndall photo of 611. Pictures
