I made the remark in a post on the trainboard.com in reply to discussion about the heaviest pulling locomotive. It was in reference to my HO 0-2-0 Teetertooter being too heavy for a guy's layout to hold up without steel legs. HA! The little engine had no pilot or trailing wheels, and had only 4 wheels under the tender. A photo was sent in to Model Railroader some years ago, who promptly ignored it, and never even returned my self addressed envelope with proper postage, nor my photo. I do note that the MR has a silhouette almost exactly like my engine photo in the magazine, although they have pasted it up to look double ended.

Hello Donald,
Thanks for reply... I'm curious about unique items like this in rail roading.. Is there a picture some where of this o-2-0 critter??
I've gotten info from another source about an o-2-o in N scale built in jest by a Jim Fitzgerld.
I'd certainly be interested to see a picture of your creation if its available..
Perhaps you and this Jim Fitzgerld fellow shoulg get your heads together on the idea of an o-2-o !!

Thanls... Robert K

Some friends of the late S.Richard Knotts built an 0-2-0 camelback for his Troll & Elfin Railroad.  The layout was featured in MODEL RAILROADER back in the mid 1980s but I don't remember if a picture of the logo was included in the piece.  I'm not sure when the layout was written up but it was about the time that the NMRA convention was in Washington, DC.  Dick passed away many years ago and the layout was dismantled.

Deleted accounts become "Anonymous".  This post is from 17 years ago, so I'd say the members who were talking here (Robert K and Donald) are long gone from here by now.

I think this was actually a 2-4-2 before photoshop. The clue is the name "Arnoux", a Frenchman who developed a system of railways using flangeless carrying wheels with small angled guide wheels at each corner of each vehicle. A line was built in the Southern suburbs of Paris.
 
The small wheels either side of the remaining driving wheel were guide wheels actually fitted each end of the locomotive. The carrying wheels were flangless.

There were 19th century steam engines with just two drivers, called "bicycles" or "singles", especially in Britain. Sometimes they were a 2-2-2, but I think 4-2-2 was more common, as these were almost always used as passenger engines.

Rapido Trains' UK-prototype division was expecting to be delivering their OO gauge model of the Sterling Single (4-2-2) around now.
