Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Time sure seems to fly by, and it is now time for the FOURTH entry to the series that I started 21 days ago... the one for which I still have made no official name!
This week's entry will focus on the historically ubiquitous yard goat... the smallest, and possibly the longest lived, of locomotive classes. If you have any 0-4-0's, 0-4-2's, 0-6-0's, 0-6-2's, 0-8-0's, 0-8-2's, or even 0-10-0's, 0-10-2's, 0-12-0's, and so on, that you've been dying to show us, now's your opportunity. The usual rules apply. Any gauge, scale, model, material, era, production time (prototype or model), nationality or livery is fair game, so long as it falls within the group of wheel configurations specified above or is of a wheel configuration that falls into the other specified criteria... in this case, if it has no lead or trailing trucks and is not an articulate (or if it has a singe, 2-wheeled trailing truck and fits all the other criteria), its fair game. It doesn't have to be a super rare or fancy or expensive locomotive or a super professional photograph. We won't judge you.
The locomotives I have shown above are a Hornby Southern Railway 0-6-0 Q1 Class (00), a Bachmann Branchline Great Western Railway 0-6-0T 57XX Pannier (00), and a Bachmann Spectrum Baldwin 0-4-0T (On30). The Pannier belongs to my dad, but the other two locomotives are my own. At the moment, only the porter is DCC Equipped.
