    Like you I always thought that 16xx were small - I've just found out that in fact they are dimensionally near identical to 57xx, the difference being a smaller boiler than even the 64xx and 9" inch shorter wheelbase on 6"smaller wheels. I found this while eying up a cabless Bachman 8750 and a loco-less 14xx cab, it's murder clearing the tank top of the boiler hump and feed pipes.
    Cheers, Pip.
