Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Well, its officially been (almost) a month since I started this series, and to celebrate that achievement, we have moved on from smaller locomotives (for the time being) to focus on the great articulate locomotives of the world.
I know what you're all thinking. "Finally! About time we get to show something BIG!" Of course, it is true that the number of consolidations owned by a single class one railroad were comparable to the total number of Northerns and Mallets in the entire United States, but there IS something cool about articulate locomotives just the same.
For this week's blog, I've had to resort to showing another of my dad's locomotives, a Bachmann Spectrum On30 2-6-6-2 mallet (one of two that my dad owns). This one is (currently) lettered for the Colorado Mining Company, but it is actually based off of a Baldwin export that was commonly used by logging companies in Central and South America, though it also bears a remarkable resemblance to the famous Sumter Valley Mallet. Someday it will be re-lettered for our personal railroad, the DPC&JC RR/RY (full name not determined as of yet), most likely as locomotive number 10 (along with (sound equipped) sister engine 12... you don't want to know what happened to number 11).
I hope you'll all enjoy showing us your large locomotives
