0031 Northern Pacific 1356 Maze

0031 >Northern Pacific 1356 Maze – Sitting idle for seventy years in Circle Square in Missoula, Montana, this 4-6-0 steam engine is a hero. In the great fires of 1910, it ferried hundreds from Northern Idaho to safety in Montana. I was interested in the mechanical structure. The pipes, rods and pistons were already maze-like. Creating a maze from them was quite simple.

I'm considering making a maze from one of the giant 4-8-8-4 steam engines of the 1950s. From the photos, they look far more complicated and maze-like than this primitive specimen.
