This may have been discussed before,but I thought that I would bring it up again.  This little engine is immensely popular with the Alaskan Cruises and tourists as we all know.  The daily trips up the mountains into Canada and back are usually sold out.

I think that the Yukon and White Pass would be a real popular set if it were offered.  I would like an engine and a dummy pulling 6-8 short passenger cars.

Reversing seats would be a great option but not necessary.

I agree, but want Bachmann to do one in On30 which I doubt will ever get done.

So I am doing one myself.


Shapeways printed body on a modified American Models S gauge PA chassis.  Just pulled the tape and still lots of work to go.

I'm going for freight and am building container and ore flats, depressed center flat, tank car and caboose.

Bachmann makes a WP&YR set in On30, but comes with a 2-6-0 which isn't accurate.

If you get the Bachmann ten wheeler in On30, that's the only RTR model that'd be correct for a WP&YR steam loco, either numbers 10 or 14, secured by the Army from the East Tennessee and Western North Carolina railroad during WW2. Both burned in a roundhouse fire at Whitehorse, Yukon before the war was over and were scrapped at the NP yard at Auburn, WA after the war.

They ran their first year in ET&WNC green with the road name blacked out, then rebuilt at the NP shops in South Tacoma, returning in black with simple WP&YR markings and low snowplows.
