HO FM H-16-66
Author: bilevel400

Greetings list members;

Aside from “The Car Works” Lowey styled H-16-66 (impossible to find), can anyone tell me if a model of this locomotive? Possibly a 3D printed example? You can get a model of everything from the Ingalls Shipbuilding one off 4-S to a model of a PRR P-5A in ( you’ve got to be kidding me), GN Empire Builder colors-! You can purchase what-? Five or six different builders of SD40-2’s, about 50 releases of F7A’s through the years, and one release of the least common version of an H-16-66??
What’s up with that?
Just asking.
Regards,
Phil

Didn't Division Point make one in brass? If so, they have to be pricey.

Did F-M use the same frame for the H-16-66 as it did for the H-16-44?  If so, it would appear that repositioning of the fuel tank would allow 6-wheel trucks.

I think I heard of a guy kitbashing an H-16-66 from an H-16-44.

Check your PMs as I found a possible resource in your quest.

I'd think an H24-66 would be a better starting point for kitbashing the H16-66 than the four-motor version. IIRC the difference in length was due to the shorter, 8 cylinder 1600 hp engine vs. 12 cylinders in the H24.

According to https://www.american-rails.com/24L730.html, the H24-66 was 66 feet in lenth.  The same website listed the length of the H16-44 as 54 feet, and the H16-66 as slightly longer.  I have both the H16-44 and H24-66 on my HO-gauge model RR.  The H24-66 is over an inch longer than the H16-44.
