Maryland & Pennsylvania RR 4-4-0 #6
Originally formed in 1901 from several narrow gauge lines, the now standard gauge Maryland & Pennsylvania RR (Ma & Pa to its fans) traced a meandering seventy-seven mile route to connect Baltimore, MD and York, PA, two cities only forty-five highway miles apart. The line’s surveyors could hardly have chosen a more picturesque route and was often referred to as the “model railroad” built to the scale of 12 inches to the foot. The railroads first order for motive power was for passenger engines Nos. 4-6 from Richmond Locomotive Works at a cost of $32,442. These were 4-4-0’s built at a time when the heel arrangement was already obsolescent. The Ma & Pa however was looking for light engines for short trains and for short wheelbases and the 4-4-0 fit the bill. They served so well that that No. 6 built in 1901 ran for over 50 years and was one of the last examples of the American standard wheel arrangement in active service before she was retired in 1952.

Awesome job, but it looks a little...large. I think it would look a little better if you downsized it for medium BBB wheels.
