My
Locomotives Roster

Most commercial G Scale locomotive models are decent  representations of DSP&P prototypes. Unfortunately, they have appeared in three different scales (1:24. 1:22, and 1:20) so they don't always look right when parked side-by-side. Some of the rolling stock on this page never existed on the DSP&P, but are figments of my construction foreman's imagination.

Above is a headshot of the LGB model of DSP&P Mogul #18. The model is of a more modern Cooke built Mogul, but few could tell that it is not the earlier Dawson and Bailey version.

 


ROAD #

DSP&P 1

NAME

"FAIRPLAY"

TYPE 0-6-0T
COLOUR MAROON
BUILT 1874
BUILDER Dawson&Bailey
LENGTH  23'
CYLINDERS 12"x16"
DRIVERS 40"
MODEL # LIONEL
PRICE $
DETAILS RE-LETTERED FROM D&RG 101 (Work in Progress)
The original "Fairplay" was a 2-6-0 Mogul with tender. This is my
concept of it as a 0-6-0T used for yard switching.

ROAD # DSP&P 2
NAME "PLATTE CANYON"
TYPE 4-4-0
COLOUR RED/BLUE
BUILT 1874
BUILDER Dawson&Bailey
LENGTH  40'
CYLINDERS 12"x16"
DRIVERS 60"
MODEL # HLW 09556
PRICE $
DETAILS RE-LETTERED FROM D&RG "Vonita Jean" (Work in Progress)
This HLW 4-4-0 is the closest G Scale model available to represent "Platte Canyon".
Other models are too large.

ROAD # DSP&P 3
NAME "SOUTH PARK"
TYPE 0-4-4T

LENGTH  29'
CYLINDERS 12"x16"
DRIVERS 39"
MODEL # L21252
PRICE $
DETAILS LGB FACTORY DIGITAL SOUND  RE-NUMBERED, OLD-TIME HEADLIGHTS ADDED
If you don't look too closely and don't count the drivers too carefully, this LGB model
might pass as a Mason Bogie. DSP&P #3 was really named "Oro City".

ROAD # DSP&P 4
NAME
"SAN JUAN"
TYPE 2-6-6T

DETAILS PLOW and LGB DIGITAL SOUND ADDED, Customized Colours (2028D Boiler, 2018D Cab)
DSP&P #'s 17, 18, and 19 were Dawson and Bailey Moguls and these LGB models are
closer to the Cooke models of 1884.
