Nothing like a USRA 0-6-0, Pennsy B28 or any other variant.

It is a NYC B10 ...... with a Pennsy tender which has a coal bunker addition the like of which I've not seen on a PRR USRA 0-6-0.
Somebody has been messing around.

Re: Cheap Sources for Scenic Materials

Hello Boys,
If you want red dust I recommend mahogany or ( if you can get it ) exotic hardwoods such as jatoba. The latter makes pretty good 'iron ore' if that's what you're after.
