A Fleischman H.O Scale German prototype steam train. The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois. Late January 2014., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Although the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers, H.O Scale Model Railroad Club operates American prototype trains...you can occasionally find yourself not knowing what might come chuffing down the track next.
Fellow club member Joe, occasionally operates this German prototype 0-8-0 steam locomotive and European two axel cars on the club layout.
This train is an import model from Fleischman, and the locomotive features a high pitched European "Peanut Whistle".
