Question: When I was young, my father collected issues of Model Railroader. Some issues were lost when we moved. One of the lost issues contained scale drawings of the Denver & Rio Grande outside-frame narrow gauge 2-8-2 steam locomotive. I’d be very happy to know if such a scale drawing can still be bought. I’ve tried to find some information on American websites, without any positive result. Thank you in advance. – Vincent Lepais, Marsannay-la-Côte, France
Answer: Those scale drawings of the Denver & Rio Grande’s class K-27 “Mud- hens” appeared in our March 1973 issue. A portion of them are reproduced above. Although I’m afraid we no longer have back issues that old for sale, you can read and print out that article – and any other article from our 84-year publication history – by subscribing to our online All-Time Archive.
