Comparison II

Dashfield, and continued here  [Comparison] and especially here [Locomotive #683 and Carriages], I’d like to present the latter picture in the original and different renderings, the original first :

The Little Engine That Could

Doesn’t it really look quite like it?

Manitou & Pikes Peak Steam Locomotive No. 1

From the railroad museum’s website: „M&PP No. 1 is a unique locomotive specially designed to climb steep mountain slopes with grades up to 25 percent. The underside is equipped with a toothed cog wheel. As the wheel turns, it connects to a stationary rack rail in the track, thus helping to pull a train up the mountain or provide braking on the way down.“
