    I finally started scanning the pictures from my trip to Denver at the end of July. While we were there we went to the Colorado Railroad Museum. I thought I would share some of the pictures of the Galloping Geese they have with everybody. #2 and #7 were both undergoing restoration/repair work while we were there, so they are in a disassembled state. Hopefully this will help anybody who wants to scratch build a Goose of their own (sorry I'm too late Shamus! ;) )

    This is from the Visitors Guide to the Museum, showing what #7 looks like when it is in on piece.

    I'll look through the rest of the pictures and see if I can find anything else RGS for you. I have a thing for the Geese, and am thinking about kitbashing a modern version for my NSR. After all, my startup short line needs to save money any way it can! :D

    Love how it turned out Shamus. The one thing I noticed when I was there was how obvious it was that these were "kitbashed". So for somebody who wants to kitbash one, a great deal of experience is not required. They are supposed to look like they were designed by a government committee! ;)

    Hi Michael,
    When I first saw one of those on Shamus' post some months ago, I thought it was the product of an imagination gone wild!!
    But truth is stranger than fiction. Thanx for the pics!!
    :D :D

    Con-cor recently announced that they were going to produce the Goose in HO and HOn3 (or was it HOn30?) I can't remember. All I know was that it wasn't Nscale :( .

    bdc,
    The only goose I know of in N scale is brass.
    I think an O scale engine would be cheaper.
