Oh Crap looks like I'm Gonna Need Another Lil Big Hauler Car



Ever have one of those days when you click on a link, see a picture and just know, dang it all, I'm going to have to model that...

Victor;

What a neat little lokie! Do you know whether it was built as an inspection locomotive or a steam dummy?

Best,
David Meashey

Oh well, at least it is the coach and not the harder to get combine.
Maybe you need to buy them by the sixpac Vic.
So what is under the floorboards? An 0-4-0 or something a little more?
The clerestory roof is going to be troublesome on the Lil Big hauler. An LGB Euro coach may be better suited.

I can see a set of trailing wheels in the back, so it's at least an 0-4-2, but I can't tell if it has a set of leading wheels.
I think that would be a cool project! I'd try to make one of those if I didn't already have too many things going...

Dave, Amber, its a little inspection loco, the more I look at it the more I think its a 2-2-2. Funny thing is it looks like the smokebox is at the floor level behind the pilots crossbeam, must be a really small boiler in there. I have a 0-4-0 Lil Hauler that I was wondering what to do with.

It's hard to make the wheels out in the small image. The close up below does look like a 2-2-2.
There seems to be an small boiler half sunk into the floor. You could probably kick the coal in with you shoe.

I always enjoy seeing locomotives of this type, whether they are identified as steam trams, steam dummies or inspection engines. Whenever I see one on the net I save the image and now have about 18 different ones on file, some of which were built by Baldwin. The one above, the Yellow Kid, was owned by the Pennsylvania Railroad and operated along the Jersey Shore.

I also have an LGB steam tram that does passenger and freight duty. Victor, it will be a good project.

Looking at the first picture again, I think vsmith is right. It does look like a 2-2-2. The front wheel looks smaller than the main drive wheel, and there doesn't seem to be a connecting rod, just the main rod from the cylinder to the one driver.
I think building one as an 0-4-2would be quite reasonable, I'm guessing there were a lot of them built for commuter use. I'd bet a lot of them were sold on the used market for industrial use and things like track inspection.
