C&C 44 Tonner Model

 Claremont & Concord engine house fire

I recently got an e-mail from my friend Bruce Douglas with a photo of his version of a C&C Ry. Bachmann 44 tonner. Bruce lives in Stratford, Ont. and has modelled New England and in particular the St.J&LC for decades. The following are his comments. "During 1987 the shortline 'Claremont & Concord Ry' in New Hampshire suffered an Engine house fire which destroying all three rostered 44 Ton locomotives.  Numbers 18, 31 and 32 were the three.  The photo above is my HO scale model  view as how one of those units looked back then. I also added it's coupler which was just thrown on the running board at the time." Enjoy...George Dutka

  1. That's got to be one of the more interesting variations of a C&C 44T that I have ever seen. Having been one of the first people on the scene of the fire the day it happened, I remember it all too well!!
