Why, I think you are right. I started and stopped it and went back and forth a bunch of times and eventually, I did see that it is an 0-6-0. I must have seen this twenty times. The first driver is pretty much hidden by the crosshead. Thanks for pointing this out. At least an 0-6-0 makes a bit more sense. The way it is filmed, it looks like there is only one car.Regards,

Looks like a 0-6-0 to me.

your small local shortlines have an express baggage with passenger seats and it is usually only one car so we are not talking about a dinky pulling a cross country passenger train with baggage car, coaches, diner, head end power car, mail car and sleepers,
the South Carolina Railroad Action Museum has an 0-4-0T come in once a year,
with one of the die-sels they pull it to the top of the hill a couple of miles away,
with three passenger coaches,
they cut it loose and it steams into the station with its passenger train

Hi folks,I just saw this posting and am thinking this is actually a good copy of the prototype. http://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-HO-NEW-YORK-CENTRAL-RR-OLD-TIME-0/-4-0-STEAM-LOCOMOTIVE-/370759902004?pt=Model_RR_Trains&hash=item56530323\;34
The model is an AHM 0-4-0 NYC switcher. I never thought much of these, but then I recently saw the 1931 movie, Possessed with Clark Gable and Joan Crawford. It was a really good movie, but that is not what I am writing about. Take a look at the YouTube clip below and tell me if you think that is the same exact engine.
I could not believe an 0-4-0 pulling a passenger train, but then mentioned it to an old-timer (even older then I) and he confirmed that on some short runs in Pennsylvani and New York, the did indeed use these types of 0-4-0's for passenger trains. In any case, I think you will find it a cool video, at least the train part. Regards, Vic Bitleris
