I hope no one is bothered that I opened both the Diner and Show Me Something in September. Judging by forum traffic, I might have the only connection right now.

This was the previous request:

PC101
More of "your smallest engine" please.

This little 0-4-0 saddle tank steam engine is the smallest locomotive on the STRATTON AND GILLETTE roster:

Please show me another of your smallest locomotives.

NorthBrit asks ''More smallest locomotives''.

My smallest Steamer, I thinkHmm. The tiny ones are hard to keep track of. Sometimes I can blow their whistle to find them.  PRR #2790, 0-6-0 dropping of a load of coal at Oly's coal yard.

Show more ''smallest Engines'' please.

PC101: "Show more "smallest Engines."

The most famous small steam engine. Thomas the Tank Engine on an excursion run on the BRVRR years ago.

In case Thomas isn't right for this thread: This little three-truck Shay belongs to my oldest grandson. Its a fussy little thing, but kinda cool.

More small engines, steam or diesel.

Remember its your railroad

This one was a donation from one of my father's co-workers, but it never ran well, unable to pull even its own shadow...

However, I didn't want to get completely rid of it, so parked it behind the Lowbanks car shop...perhaps a project for the employees in their spare time.

Please show us another derelict car or locomotive, or perhaps a structure that's seen better days.

Please show another 4-8-4.

This one was originally a Santa Fe locomotive, with a huge eight-axle tender.  I shortened the tender, then used part of a covered hopper to change it into a centipede-type.  The centipede bed used the cut-up and re-assembled original sideframes, with a homemade overlay of styrene, traced from a photo ad in MR for a brass Niagara...

It went to a friend in Wisconsin some years ago.

Another Niagara, please, or perhaps a Mexican Nigara

More small train cars please.

Some years ago, I picked up two of these MDC tender kits for a very reasonable price, and already had the bodyshell (but no cast metal underframe) of another one, acquired much earlier.
I decided to make them into MoW water cars - one each for a couple of fellow modellers, and one for myself.  They're supposedly equipped with a gasoline-powered pump in what was formerly the coal bunker, now completely covered and equipped with a door.

This one's for a friend's freelanced late '20s-era layout...

...this one for another friend's '50s-era CNR layout...

...and the bodyshell-only one, with lots of lead-weights added, for my own EG&E late '30s layout...

While mine is more-or-less the same as the other two, one of the carshop's employees suggested that if the coal bunker were slightly modified, it could double, in the winter, as a covered tender for MoW equipment that was coal-powered (mostly cranes and rotary plows).  
In theory, the pump would be temporarily removed, and the coal bunker loaded from any coaling tower, with the roof keeping the coal both dry and not frozen into a solid block. 

It's probably an improbable scenario, but I liked the idea of making it look just a bit unique, no matter how far-fetched it might be...

Wayne

Please show us your somewhat whimsical rolling stock creations.

EDIT:  Sorry, but the slowness of this site contributed to delaying my offering, so let's carry on with

Great work on the water tanks Wayne.

I am doing something very similar for my work train. I bought this small vanderbilt tender to be the water tank for the train. I was going to mount a pump on the deck and say the oil tank was for diesel fuel for the generator in the following train car.

Given the torpid responses of both this Forum and my photobucket account, it's a wonder if I can get a photo quick enough to reply to the latest request in this thread.
