the railway they are building is the one but it isn't 40 miles long, it is about 28 miles long but it will join up with its parent railway, the Ffestiniog railway, about 12 miles long, to create 40 miles of wood and steel :D

there is a website dedicated to the rebuilding of it.

I think its because they have a smaller boiler but same pressure so pipes were built outside the engine, in view

This kinda looks like a standard guage steam engine


Killer, I think they look similar because they are both 'baldwins'.
They were built in america for service in the trench supply railways but the war ended shorthly after, and the large amount of these kind of loco's built meant they were sold all over the world, eg 590 went to wales while others went to sugar plantations, waterworks, mines, passenger railways.

Well if you mean in real life... i would say no. At least no steam-ones, and i doubt they will make others..

If your talking about TT, i would say yes.

They are working on it right now ^^
