Intriguing post! Tell us more. The name of the RR indicates it’s in my backyard - east side from Seattle....

Well Glenn ,the Bellevue and Cascade Railroad was a 3 foot Narrow Gauge in Iowa with 36 miles of track! The ox was there last working locomotive, by the way the locomotive started life at SJ Groves Construction Company in New York state with five other siblings building a dam, then to the B&C RR, after that moved to Uniontown Ohio, east of Akron, at a Portland cement facility

Starting on doing blueprints don't know if I should do in AutoCAD? for this engine just out of curiosity if anybody would be interested in building this locomotive !I May build a few frames to sell if anybody shows interest, also having trouble figuring out how to post correct size pictures I've posted some pictures on Pinterest just do a Google picture search Bellevue and Cascade Railroad Plymouth locomotive, and just in case anybody wants to know I owned the real Plymouth locomotive in the pictures I was going to build it to represent the original ox!!
