This question is directed at my Lionel # 6-18043 C & O "Chessie" 4-6-4 streamlined yellow/silver #490 Hudson. There is nice detail (not really a distinctive point on a streamlined steam engine). Basic dimensions seem to line up. In the close coupled position the overall length is almost spot on.
I do realize that the engineer is frozen in position, the boiler is stone cold and there is electricity driving it's wheels but I am thinking Lionel must have had something else in mind...
What is Semi about Lionel's rendition of their Scale #490 ?
I have downsized locomotive models but this one does not seem to be downsized? What am I missing?
