New Math???
0.72" X 120 = 7.2 FEET in TT... i.e. 86.4in

If you build something you enjoy... my comments are completely irrelevant.
It is your model... your components... GO FOR IT!

D'oh! I must have had one helluva brain fart!

I think I may have found a decent match for the chassis:

The 999 had 86.5" drivers, and the lead truck has spoked drivers much like the chassis does.

That's NEVER happened to me...
Well... almost never... I mean VERY seldom... occasionally... more often than it used to? (...as my Wife assures me!)

That is most certainly worth modeling! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York_Central_and_Hudson_River_Railroad_No._999

From BigDuke76 in Osoyoos, BC

in addition to the ATSF & milw. hudsons w/ 84" drivers, the C& NW had hudsons,

and the milw's streamline atlantics had 84" dia. also - as of the mid to late 1930's.

alas only one machine still exists in North America out of all these: ATSF hudson 3461 on display in wichita KS.
