Reply to "Lionel Grand Canyon Railway Locomotive #29 (2-8-0) Question (2222050)"

Weaver model was a Baldwin 2-8-0.  At the time, Weaver did (several of these models), with different paint/different railroads.  The Baldwin/Alco discussion was done 20 plus years ago. 

Last trip to the Grand Canyon, #29 is an Alco steam locomotive.

As mentioned these late steam locomotives, one at the GC, and one, Cumberland MD., were from LS&I. Lake Superior and Ishpeming,  An Iron ore hauling railroad.

734. Cumberland, MD.

I don't know of any models of this large 2-8-0.  The 734 tender was also different, a larger tender for the Maryland Railroad.


Neither is operational.
