Default The Sundance Central Railroad

The most incredibly detailed model railroad that I've seen. Enjoy!

Having watched this video numerous times I realize that the Locomotive #102 exposed me to several things that I had not seen before.

The engine is tagged "F & C Ry" which could make it a rendition of some of the rolling stock of the Frankfort and Cincinnati Railroad...a 40 mile narrow gauge shortline in Kentucky that never got close to Cincinnati Ohio! "Forty bridges in 40 miles..."

Here's a couple of computer screen shots...

1. This is the first time I have seen a spark arrestor of this design. Those moose horns mounted by the headlamp add an interesting touch!

2. Both the externally mounted counterbalances mounted on the drivers and the reversing gear are new to me. Anyone know anything about this valve gear?

Maybe if I'd started when I was sixteen..... NOPE! Still not enough time.

The locomotives show clear design of having come from the D&RGW. Most likely they started life as K27, K28, K36 or K37 locomotives of the D&RGW narrow gauge.

I came across this interesting video. "La Trochita" is a narrow gauge railroad in Argentina which appears to running a pair of early Baldwin 2-8-2's that are set up very similar to #102 on the Sundance. The driving wheels are set inside the frame and are driven via the counterweights mounted on the axles outside the frame. The Sundance #102 would appear to be an earlier version of these same locomotives having a slide valve and that unique valve gear. The Argentine units have piston valves and what appears to be a Walschaerts valve gear.
