Revell 1:87 'Big Boy' an OOB build with some background scenery. The wheels and linkages are all ok to turn as described in the kit, I now wonder if it was worth the effort for a static display. Unfortunately I didn't take many photographs during the build.

A detailed weathered build of this locomotive was covered back in the 'Trains and rolling stock under construction' section by spanner570 (back in 2010).

This may have been to allow it to be pushed/pulled by a motorized loco on a layout as an Historic viewing. PaulE
