D5379 Class 26,the first British loco to scale the ‘Horse Shoe Curve.

‘The Curve is part of the Elgin MRC’s ‘N’ gauge modular layout based on American practice. It represents part of the famous climb out of Altoona in Pennsylvania, round the Horseshoe Curve and up to the Gallitzin Tunnels. However, over five miles of track have been reduced to just eight feet, so it’s not quite exact!
