"Builty by H. K. Porter of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the last years of the 19th Century when narrow gauge saw its peak.  It was not only used for industrial comlexes, but also for regular narrow gauge service.  The diamond smoke stack is typical for wood burning locomotives," said AHM's 1967-68 catalog.  This model had a retail of $11.95 in the late '60s.

No. 3010 -1968 Release
AHM presents an illustration of the prototype 0-4-4 Forney in the company's 1967-68 catalog.  The model is listed with a $9.95 retail and no roadname is present.  AHM catalog copy states, "This engine can still be seen today at the Edaville Railroad, South Carver, Mass., where it runs with several of its sisters on a small Narrow Gauge line.  Forney locos were perhaps the most popular types on many Narrow Gauge Railroads across the country and vary only slightly in design."

HO-Scale Narrow Gauge
Baldwin 2-6-2 Steam Engine
No. 3009 -1967 Release
This AHM Minitrains narrow gauge steam engine appears to be the biggest locomotive cataloged for the 9mm line.  It is presented as a Fall 1967 release with a $14.95 retail in the AHM 1967-68 catalog.

AHM's Minitrains collection of steam engines for HOn 9mm track operation included a number of selections. The most common is likely the Baldwin 0-4-0. Additionally, AHM also offered a Coal Burner, Wood Burner and Union Pacific Loco with Tender. In the 1967-68 catalog AHM shows illustrations for a Forney 0-4-4 and Baldwin 2-6-2. I am not certain that either was produced. They are absent from AHM listings by the early 1970s.
