Jim Snee's cardboard Loco

Jim Snee is a very special brand of modeller. His material of choice is not Styrene or Brass, but Cardboard and paper. This particular model was inspired by a photgraph of "Pioneer". A locomotive from a Tin Mine near Lavant close to Lands End in Cornwall. From all accounts it wasn't a very sucessful design. But the prototype had a certain charm to it. So Jim set to and built this model from the one known photograph in existence. The model will run on a KATO 4 wheel chassis. We at Gnine.info really like this model and can see something similar appearing on a few layouts around here.
