Growler 1…

More indulgence. Here is the planned first locomotive, still in card mock-up form, but a better picture than I’ve had previously.

There are wheels under there somewhere: the model is running on a complete Bachmann 0-6-0 Plymouth. If you look closely you can see the Plymouth roof horn through the cab windows. I’d like a modern European style colour scheme, but I’m undecided on how it should look, so I’m open to suggestions. The model is loosely based on the Schöma locomotives of the last DB narrow gauge railway in existence, on the island of Wangerooge, as seen here. The text is in German but the pictures are beautiful.
