Some snazzy-looking power there, Charlie, although the guy standing next to the 564 looks to be in a different (smaller) scale...maybe a leprechaun?

I don't think he is that small, he is below the roadbed while the locomotive drivers are even with a roadway. With 63 inch drivers and 6" rail height I would guess he would be about 5'6" which would make him tall by my standards.  Maybe he is in the photo to show how big the locomotive is. I haven't seen many builder photos with men in them.

Yea, you may be right, Charlie...without that bowler hat, I'd guess him to be about 5' tall, at best.

In model railroading, there are between six and two hundred ways of performing a given task.
Most modellers can get two of them to work.

Longtime Member - Been here so long that I could be considered an old timer but we won't go there. 

I can smell a steam post ten blocks away, and when I do, clear the tracks because the steam express will be hi ballin through
