If I remember correctly, that really big 2-8-0 (#29) is a former LS&I ore hauling locomotive. Thus, I do not believe Lionel, nor anybody else, makes a model of THAT size, which is also like the big 2-8-0 that used to operate on the Western Maryland Scenic Railway.
Grand Canyon #29 is a smaller ex-LS&I 2-8-0 than is Western Maryland Scenic's 734.
Weaver's old 2-8-0 (whatever happened to that tooling???) would be an adequate fit for Grand Canyon 29.
