Here is my K-Line 2-truck Shay.  It has been on display for maybe 14 years waiting for a layout to run on

Superpower steam meets superpower diesel, late 1940s.  Both the Q2 and Centipede were built post WWII, but both had short lives with the Q2 retired in 1951 and most Centipedes gone by 1957 (a few made it to 1962).

The Q2 is an MTH model, the Centipede is Lionel.

Believe all the Q2's were built before VE Day.

You are probably right.  My books state they were built in 1944-45, with service started before the war ended. However, I don't have data on when the last one was built.  Do you have that date? I'd like to add it to my spreadsheet.  Thanks.

according to my copy of Pennsy Q Class Classic Power 5, Q2 6196,6197,6198,and 6199 were the last ones built, in June of '45.

Well Hirsimaki's  "Black Gold-Black Diamonds" Vol 1 quantifies build date as 6/43-4/45.  That would be pre VE Day.

Dave,

That looks like a good book to get if I want to talk about my Q2s to quests.  Thanks.

The photo of this small 2-8-2 was taken at Strasburg.  Needs some work.

Now 475, their 4-8-0, looks pretty good.

P1030646

This is the first 4-8-0 I've heard of let alone seen.  I don't think they are too common.

First picture is in Xenia, Ohio, and the tracks & viaduct are long gone(like decades gone, never mind the steamer).  I remember watching trains with my Dad at the Xenia station, but that was years ago, and there were tracks.  I remember the viaduct being closed off to traffic and never going over it. 

 

Xenia Viaduct

 

The next set of pictures were in Fairborn, Ohio on a snowy day...
