Locomotives > The Consolidation Project

In 1995 Bill Boller and Stan Marshal enticed us to join them in a project to make 4 consolidation locomotives originally based on and Denver and South Park Cooke built 2-8-0. We changed the project so that we would be building 3 D&RGW Baldwin C-16's while Stan modeled the D&SP Cooke #45. In took 8 years to get 268 Durango Switch under steam and 278 followed close behind. It took Bill and little longer to complete 268 Bumble Bee and Stan didn't live to finish his #45. However Ray Bjerrum has done a wonderful job of completing #45.
