Atlantic steam locomotive model


This large scale model (56" long) of an Atlantic wheel arrangement (4-4-2) steam locomotive is a bit of a mystery. We know it was built in the 1880s to demonstrate an unknown patent. The patent likely has something to do with the sliding mount and possibly an equalizing suspension of the lead truck but that's not certain.  The maker of this model is also unknown, there are no markings or identification anywhere on it. 

Thanks, Rolf!
