Product Description

Class J Poster

Enough information to build a J!  Well, almost.  But definitely enough detail to keep the engineer, rail fan, or interested bystander absorbed in the intricacies of the J’s construction.

This detailed N&W Class J poster is compiled from multiple drawings taken from the NWHS archives and shows the engineer’s side view of later J locomotives (such as 611) with tender. The drawings include drivers, nose, rod, oiler, Baker value gear, and other detail drawing inserts as drawn by the N&W draftsmen. Poster size is 24" x 36" on heavy glossy paper stock, perfect for framing and display!

    Great Print of J-class Locomotive Design Features

    Posted by Ned on 27th Jul 2019

    This is an excellent print that appears to be a composite of several design/shop drawings of the J-class locomotive. It shows a great deal of detail that should be of exceptional appeal to anyone with railroad or mechanical engineering interests. The quality of the original hand-made drawing(s) is quite clear, reinforcing the old adage that "They just don't build 'em like they used to."

    Interesting Details and Great Print Quality

    Posted by Bob on 27th Nov 2014

    This poster is printed from one of the design layout drawings of J-class and tender printed on poster paper. The original must have been larger because some of the text is quite small at 1/16" but still readable, which says good things about the print quality! Besides the basic outline of the locomotive there are a number of details and cross sections. Everytime I look at it I discover new and interesting details. Study this drawing in detail and you'll know everything (or at least a great deal) about 611 when it hits the rails next summer! It should be a good conversation starter in an office, workshop, train room, or even a pub. Me?, I'm going to hang this in at work, what else would an engineer have in his office?
