Has anyone ever seen an O scale model of a B&O 4-6-4?
There were four of them, all built in the 1930's and having some unique engineering features, like water tube boilers. All were in passenger service as well.

The first,Class V-1 number 5047, was a rebuild a B&O 4-6-2 with same number in 1933.
The next in Class V-2 was the more famous semi-streamlined "Lord Baltimore," numbered as 2 and later re-numbered 5340.

Classes V-3 (number 5350, built in 1935) and V-4 (number 5360, built in 1936) were identical and looked more 'purposeful' without the English style smoke box door levers the first two had when new.

All were out of service by 1950. But I'm wondering if anyone as built or see any O scale models of such B&O power?
