    Hi All,
    Some more goodies from early Rogue Locomotive Works test castings.

    These are three different tender styles. My dad told me two of these are usually run on the coal carrier roads, and the other curved top tender was a western road.

    The first casting will need the vertical ribs filed off, they are for casting purposes only.

    The curved top tender has the coal pusher top detail sticking out.

    Any thoughts?

    Collector value. Maybe if a power mechanism could fit, the weight would help with traction.

    Robert,
    I was wondering what particular railroads might run these types of tenders. I am going to post these on the swap.

    I think they are generic enough to fit at least several locos on may roads. Just have to go by photos.

    The 2 on the right were commonly used with the 2-8-0 Consolidated style Loco's which was used by a lot of railroads

    Message sent I'm interested in them.

    Not RLW castings. Think they were originally made by George Johnstone, then casted by Chris Croissant.
    Possible that they were marketed under the Small Scale Works label.
    (RLW only made the GP38-2. The first C44-9Ws were also labelled RLW, but they were actually the first AZL products)

    zfuture,

    My dad, George Johnstone, told me these castings were RLW experimenting with casting and using these experiments to develop US steam. Ultimately, they settled on plastic housings for diesel, thus the GP38s. My father has also mentioned Chris quite often.
