Reply to "Westside Model Company B&O Q-4b"

I did not know that it is a Westside when we talked about it; check the wheel gauge! I had a Westside EM-1 that the gauge on all of the axles was tight, maybe it was made to what are now called Proto-48 specs. I say that as the box/literature proudly stated "Made from real railroad blueprints" or words to that effect. I can see the Korean manufacturer reading the 4'8½" dimension and building to that instead of 5'.

Later Gator,
