Q2 takeover:



Norm;

Your layout is absolutely the most realistic I’ve ever seen. While I am not a fan of weathering equipment, your weathering seems just right - obviously hard working equipment without looking decrepit!!! And the Q2’s are beautiful engines. Now, I have to ask one dumb question... how did you film the parts from inside the shop??? Talk about realistic - amazing.

Well while no where near as neat as the beautiful engines that have been posted, the attached PRR ore car came from MPC in 1987.  While I have no idea how many or even if the PRR had any cars of this sort, Lionel felt that they were prototypical enough to produce them.  So here is the Lionel MPC 19300 PRR ore car.

The PRR's Q1, a single prototype built in 1942, was an 4-6-4-4 duplex design with the rear cylinders reversed and under the firebox to allow larger drivers.  The engine was built for fast freight but the cylinder locations resulted in a smaller firebox that could not maintain boiler pressure under load, limiting its sustained speed.  It had streamlining when it was first built, but it was removed in 1944 because it interfered with maintenance and was not that effective at low speeds.  The engine was last used in 1948 and scraped in 1949.
