Re: 0-6-0 Linkage Geometry Anyone?

Roger Goldman makes a 1.5 scale USRA 0-6-0. I'd give him a call, I bet he'd sell you a drawing set.

Since it pumps less water, you can leave it on longer when working up a grade which minimizes the temp drop in the boiler. This is similar to how for example on the Union pacific 844 the...
