Needing improved performance from their H-7 class Mikados, New York Central and Lima, in 1922, created the H-10 class engines.  A larger firebox grate, a feedwater heater, larger cylinders, lightweight rods, and a booster created an engine that could both out-pull and out-run the H-7.  Division Point has used the latest in production techniques to produce its own version of superior H-10 2-8-2s.

Part of the fun in models is understanding the construction.  This also applies to the real world.  It is fascinating and a good lesson to see how the prototype rail industry controls and builds its environment.  Here is an example of trackwork in the urban environment of San...
When you have been a railroad hobbiest for some time, you accumulate quite a bit of material.  Stacks of kits, modeling supplies and tools are supplemented with sets of research materials such as books and magazines.  Eventually it is time to clean up the shop, reorganize, and move along those...
