Re: 1" Baldwin-Westinghouse Class D....Sacramento Northern

Thank you Gary. I must say yours are coming along quite nicely also. Are yours based off of the old Mercer design? We have one at the New Jersey Live Steamers and it is a fun unique locomotive to ride behind. They're probably hasn't been one made in 1" scale but I think it will be nice to pull aroun...
