BigBoy #4005 Picture Archive
In 1.6" Scale Live Steam
Page 1

This is perhaps the most detailed and stunningly beautiful locomotive in 1.6" Scale ever created, Tom Miller's BigBoy X4005. The engine, built by Tom Miller in conjunction with Severn Lamb Locomotive Works in England is magnificent. Every detail on the prototype is perfectly modeled on this locomotive. Furthermore it runs just as the prototype did in the 1940s. Tom's private layout features a long, 2 1/2% grade. This locomotive, pulling 40 freight cars sounds identical to the real thing. It takes your breath away.
