There was a construction article of the 1" scale Atlantic designed by Lester Friend in the Miniature Locomotive starting May-June 1952

Beginner's Locomotive, 3/4" scale 0-4-0, Cliff Brackstaffe, construction article in Miniature Locomotive Sep-Oct 1952. Castings were available from the Miniature Locomotive Company in 1954.

3/4" B&O switcher by H.J. Coventry. Construction article in Miniature Locomotive starting Mar-Apr 1954. Continued in north American Live Steamer, Mar 1956 (only for one issue?).

Miniature Locomotive ceased publication with the Nov-Dec 1954 issue, so some or all of the series remained unfinished.

The list is starting to shape up nicely! A lot of stuff I forgot think of but should have!

Followup to my earlier comment on the RMI locomotives - I think only the originally Sweet Creek is Keith Watson's design, the others are derivatives dreamed up by RMI. I will check.

The full drawing set for the replicas of the Jupiter and UP 119 are available on the Intenet. Although full scale, much use was made of fabrications and they lend themselves to scaling down for a live steam model.

That Light mogul that was drawn by Paul Brien of Nashville is actually a re-drawing of the Pershing G. Scott Mogul. It beefed up a few things, gave a huge amount of detals, and used larger rods, but the locomotive is the 'Scotty Mogul'.

Also add to the list the Miller Backyard Railroad 4-4-0, which used piston valves and 100% cutoff, with a plunger in the middle which changed it from inside steam to outside steam for reversing. Paul Brien built one of those 4-4-0s, heavily modified to make it work and track better. He then designed a 4-6-0 using those castings, which he called the LRR ten-wheeler. Unfortunately the cylinder casting (1 piece casting) which was used is no longer available.

I built a Scotty Mogul with valve gear drawing from Paul Brian's 260. The drawings Scotty sold were from Bill Hall that he drew up from Carl Purinton's Mogul. Paul made improvements to Carl's engine and it is a sweet running engine.
