When Little Joe meets real little Joe
Author: tc

Had to go to Missoulia today so brought my N scale little joe to meet the sights of the real Milwaukee road. First a visit to Deer Lodge

Then on to Missoulia Milwaukee Road depot and on the way back had to stop at Gold Creek for a visit to the power station.

Wow!  What a comparison.  Totally missed the model in photo #1 until I saw the enlargement in #2.  I was then on the lookout for it in subsequent shots.  Enjoy your model.

You couldn't miss the caboose in Deer Lodge but have you seen the bay window caboose in Three Forks. There is an extended vision caboose painted Milwaukee alongside the tracks in Bonner. The Treasure Chest has a pretty good stock of N scale equipment they might have some n scale ribside cabooses left.

The museum at Ft Missoula off Reserve St has the wooden depot from Drummond restored in MILW orange and maroon paint and the old ACM Willamette 3 truck geared locomotive stuffed and mounted.

A Girl Scout visiting the San Luis Obispo Railroad Museum this spring poses with the museum's HO model of a Plymouth 20-ton gas mechanical switching locomotive, in front of the museum's full-size #2038, assigned in 1941 to Camp Roberts and acquired by the museum in 2018 after it had three different owners in Northern California.

Very cool, Tim.  The difference in size is amazing!

Nice comparison!

The N scale model should be about 1/160 the length, height, and width of the prototype... thus easy to miss when sitting on the prototype.

Volume of the model to the prototype is about 1: 4,000,000!
