About Steam Engine TW 29 including pictures of a prototype and a model that you can build in 1 to 25 scale.
Polish narrow gauge tank steam locomotive TW 29 was produced in the years 1929 and 1930. It was used for many years (1929 – 1976) by the Upper Silesian Narrow Gauge Railroads on 785 mm track.
The Upper Silesian Narrow Gauge Railways connected hundreds of coal mines, mills, factories, and power stations. They carried mainly coal and ore. They were the backbone of the internal transportation system in Upper Silesia.
There were a total of six TW 29 locomotives built. The serial numbers were 313, 314, 315, 409, 410 and 435. Serial number 409 was the last machine to be operated and finally scrapped in 1976. It was built by the Polish manufacturer Fablok.

The basic instructions in the book focus on card stock construction. Just substitute the material of your choice.
The resulting model is a highly detailed 1 to 25 scale replica of the original engine. Because of the small scale, some minute details are omitted. Experienced modelers add some of their own.
