Tag Archives: an N scale model?

THE ALCO C-424 LOCOMOTIVE!

Alco road switcher compact,

N scale has a few intact…

Proitotypes too

Survive so few,

Little commercial impact!

Very few in N scale,

Available for sale…

This one is cheap

But worthy to reap,

On E-bay a bid might avail.!

Waiting to see if he wins,

Waiting on needles and pins…

An over-bid

Could sink yours kid,

If then he sadly grins.

A RAILROAD DREAM

A RAILROAD DREAM

Two-six-oh Number eleven,

A steam engine of repute…

Has been refurbished

And steamed up

For another tourist route.

Reading about it on the Narragansett Pier–

Got pictures on the M&NJ…!

The perfect engine so I thought

For an N scale train foray!

Almost found the right body

But mechanisms were poor…

Never did get the thing together

But the EVERETT RAILROAD is sure…

It can run it on its railroad line

Pulling happy crowds…

My “dream” engine is still working–

The n scale one is down!
