NWP Steam

Thomas Beutel <Thomas.Beutel@...>


Don't forget the IHC 2-6-0... This is an SP M-4, and two M-4's were used by
NWP as well. Clover House has NWP steam decals.

NWP rostered a large number of 4-4-0's and 4-6-0's that could be well
represented by available models. Bachmann's 4-4-0, IHC's 4-4-0, and Mantua's
4-6-0 come to mind.

Thank you to everyone who replied. I will now go away and find out more
about the 0-6-0 S-8, 4-6-0 T-28, 2-8-0 C-3 prototypes.

I'm trying to model Santa Rosa circa the 1940s and want to feature the P&SR
interurban line. So I'm looking for models of SP/NWP steam appropriate for
the time. However, I'm not sure my modelling skills are up to building the
MDC models, but I might buy one after checking stuff out, and see how it

It is? I need to dig out some pictures. I have the Premier 2-6-0 but
always assumed it would require quite a bit of work to 'espee' it. Maybe not?

I'm also thinking about P87'ing a small steam loco. Maybe this would be
the one to try.

Hi Nelson,

See the August 1994 issue of Model Railroader. It has a number of photos.
One modification you can make is to shorten the tender (it is too long) or
just replace it with an MDC vandy.

(SP M-4 2-6-0)I need to dig out some pictures.

The Mantua 4-6-0 is patterned after a late 1800's Roger's design, very
similar to Sierra's #3 (of the TV show Petticoat Junction fame). NWP's #101
is a Roger's 4-6-0.

The Bachmann 4-4-0 is also late 1800's, and to my mind could represent a
number of NWP's 4-4-0's, in particular #8.

I don't know off-hand whether #8 and #101 survived into the 1940's. I'll
have to check Fred Stindt's book on that.

I have two locos painted for NWP (#8 and #301) and I'll try to post pictures
of them in the shared file area soon. I also started working on #101, but
haven't finished that one yet.

I assume this is the Mantua #337008 in the Walthers 99 catalogue?
Do you also mean the Bachmann American type 4-4-0? A late 1800s design.
