Isn't the K-27 a narrow gauge? So, even though its designed for a 3.5" gauge track, I believe the scale is bigger than his other engines.  I think its 1.17" or something like that.

Or maybe you're modifying Kozo's plans and making it a little smaller?

Regardless, that is some mighty fine looking brass domes, Dale!

Kim no modifying It is built to Kozo plans .The loco. is about 12 iniches wide by about 40 inches long . Yes the K27 is a narrow gauge . It is larger then the other as you say . Kozo has done a great job at disigning it I thanks anyway . I have all his books and have learn so much from him .

Being a narrow gauge, scaling to a given track gauge means a larger engine than standard gauge.  One of the fellows at my club has a 7.5" gauge D27, and it's over 1000 pounds.

Quite a large model indeed. Will you be making some riding cars for it as well?
