The Sentinel steamer
The strange looking beast is a Sentinel. This is a scratchbuilt (styrene) body on a Bachmann GE 44 tonner bogie based on photos and a drawing in an issue of Railway Bylines. These strange things had small vertical boiler at the front, water tank in the middle and a two cylinder steam engine at the rear with chain drive to the rear axle. There was a chain drive between the two axles on the other side. It looks in pretty rough shape and needs a body rebuild. No need by now to point out how well the detail on the figures shows up.
