Winter 1971 - Page 88


PFM has also imported a precise replica of the Sierra's Number 38. The locomotive is a good small articulated for most model railroads where the curves are a bit sharper than life. The locomotive had only a short life span on the Sierra; purchased used in 1 952 and sold in 1 955. This Sierra RR photo was taken on one of the locomo tive 's last trips hauling a trainload of railfans in Southern Pacific passenger cars.

Many of the Sierra 's original freight and passenger cars still reside in the Jamestown yards. This 701 6 gallon, 28-foo t, tank car was built in 1 90 7. MDC makes a similar car kit in HO scale.
