While this isn't a question about 2 rail scale, it is a question about this model. Does anyone know anything about the prototype? The more people I talk to about this model, the more references to a very specific story I get about how Westside chose this locomotive to model for its unusual operating conditions with the "water bottle."
What do you want to know? I saw a lot of Q-4b's and a few with water bottles running through Baltimore in the 1940's- '50's. They were pulled by electrics through Mt Royal headed northbound.
