At current time, there are four different locomotives in our "TT traveler's fleet", along with a fifth who posed for a few photos before being retired from the fleet.LVG1 wrote:There are different locomotives shown on your pictures.AngrySailor302 wrote:Correct. Zeke is a Zeuke locomotive, which predates BTTB.
On the pics of March 4 and May 7 it's also not Zeuke.
Zeke, my first actual 1:120 TT scale locomotive (the first two TT locos I bought were a pair of Tri-Ang 0-6-0 "Jinty" locomotives, which are 1:100), did all of the early photographs, mainly in GA, TN, NC, PA, and CT.
Zeke was pulled from such duties when he fell apart at Steamtown USA due to the plastic screw that the person who owned him before me to replace both of the chassis screws being stripped out, and subsequently falling out.
Ernie and Bert are a HP Products E-7 A/B combo, used primarily for photos where their size comes in handy for locating them on pictures. Both are pulled from the program for a refit and repaint.
Lindsey is a Lindsay 0-4-0 docksider, and is the current pick for the program, due to the size and prototype, especially for the ease of posing, as well as the fact that we have a case for her that protects her during transit.
I have no interest in adding one of my BTTB locos to the mix as of yet. There is a strong chance that Lindsey will be phased (or at least supplanted )out soon for one of my surplus Lionel 1:120 models . I intend on taking my Lionel 1:120 "General" to Kennesaw, GA within the next few months to pose with the real "General".
