Thanks, John. The Challenger is Lionel's first generation semi-scale Lionmaster model. The Lionmaster Challengers are nearly scale sized but look great on O72 curves. The Santa Fe Northern is from MTH's semi-scale Rail King line. The 2900 series Northerns, due to their long tenders, were just a few inches shorter than Challengers. You can see the MTH model is significantly shorter than the Lionmaster Challenger when placed side by side. Both are great looking and operating models though coming from different reference points in semi scale sizing.

I like that your website categorizes the topics and allows for editing over time as I plan to improve my previous posts with captions and additional photos as time permits.

Thanks for the explanation. They do look great. I agree about the benefit of semi-scale locos, especially the long articulateds, going around curves.

Looking forward to more of your stuff...

John
