I have always loved the early American style locomotive. In fact, my fist project was a 1-1/2” scale American 4-4-0. My next locomotive was the 3/4” gauge OS Porter. I purchased this as a kit from an older gentleman who never finished it and just enjoyed looking at a partly assembled locomotive on his dresser each morning. He finally decided to part with it and I was the lucky one to get this
locomotive. The little engine ran like a Swiss Watch. Although I loved the engine, I finally sold it to begin work on another project.
When I saw the new OS Baldwin Mogul, I was really excited. I already knew the high quality of OS Live Steam Locomotives. When I had the Porter, I always wanted to see it in a larger gauge. The Baldwin Mogul is the answer to that wish.
After studying the OS Mogul, I finally decided that I would take it on as my next project. In this section of my website, I will document the assembly of the OS Baldwin Mogul.
This locomotive was built by the Baldwin Locomotive works somewhere around the 1870’s to 1880’s. It was a natural progression from the American. It has a two wheel lead truck and six drive wheels giving it more power to pull larger trains than the American.
The locomotive is complete and running. But I add more pictures and some video in the future.
