Let's not forget that Santa Fe also purchased three L-1 Mikados from the Pennsylvania to become the 882 class. They lasted two years however and no in service photos have been located to my knowledge.
Omnicon Models imported L-1s way back when.
Good catch. I'd never even thought to look for those. Like the Y3s - they were bought for war service and quickly dumped. I believe the 7 B&Ms got alot more use.
I didn't see any in the guide but any Baldwin Mountains or Mikados that could be modified to resemble ATSF? They were the most common locos in freight service.
