As n scale Western Maryland locomotives are scarce.
I modified an old minitrix loco to suit.
They were called Russian decapod's as they were originally an order for Tsarist Russia but the revolution saw that they were never delivered.Ended being bought by various U.S. lines !.

Thanks , must admit I'm getting quite into "kitbashing" to create things to fit in with my modelling !.
For example the smoke stack I fabricated from a piece of a cheapo jewellers screwdriver.
Behind that the sand dome is two 1/8" solid rivets ( im an aircraft engineer ).
The rear dome is from a piece of chocolate block connector , the part that shrouds the screw !.
The pipes and handrails are from stainless lockwire.
Cheers Cliff.
