Jim Snees card industrial loco

Jim Snee sent us this picture of his latest project a card loco in Gnine:

This particular model was inspired by a photgraph of "Pioneer". A locomotive from a Tin Mine near Lavant close to Lands End in Cornwall. From all accounts it wasn't a very sucessful design. But the prototype had a certain charm to it. So Jim set to and built this model from the one known photograph in existence. The model will run on a KATO 4 wheel chassis.We at really like this model and can see something similar appearing on a few layouts around here.

Very little is known about the actual protoype itself. It is thought that it was originally an 18" gauge loco. So it would make a very nice model for all you Gn15 modellers out there.
