Anthony Tonna's Wooden Locomotives: Cab Forward

Anthony Tonna's Wooden Locomotives
Cab Forward

Another of Anthony Tonna's models: a wonderfully detailed Southern Pacific Cab Forward. Yet another unusual locomotive, the Cab Forward had a unique arrangement of placing the locomotive backwards in front of the tender. A very successful design, the reason for this was to prevent smoke from asphyxiating the engineers as the trains went through many of the Southern Pacific's long tunnels.
