Baldwin Works Number 37399 of 1911 was a 60 cm gauge 2-4-0 tender locomotive built for the Cantareira Tramway in Brazil. During its long life it has hauled passengers, sugar, limestone and cement on various Brazilian lines, and is currently being restored for further use in preservation. Modified at various times during its life, and paired with different tenders, it is a superb project for modellers.
In the 92 landscape A4 pages of this book Peter Manning provides 150 CAD drawings of the engine and its tenders, largely to 1:24 scale with full-size basic dimensions included. Plus there is an excellent history of the locomotive and its environment by Nicholas Burman with 20 photographs, both B&W and colour.
No. 37399 would make a wonderful model for 16mm NG, but it would also lend itself to larger scales, notably 7 1/4" gauge, where it could be used to adapt a 'Romulus' design, or closer scale, to modify 'Lucky 7', to which it is very similar in its basics. Spiral bound with an acetate cover.
