HO Scale: The largest Steam Loco in the world, scratch built by Andy Dubs, Switzerland

Union Pacifc was famous for their huge Locomotives, from Steam to Turbine and Diesel. UP = Union Pacific or Unlimited Power !
Different model manufacturers produced this particular steam loco in Z, N, HO, O and G scale.
