I have to say, this engine is cute! After taking my 2-8-0 apart to find it wasn't fixable by me, I decided to use it for parts, here. It just so happens the cab fits the boiler of the 2-6-0. The end result is a cute little bugger perfect for any short, or branchline a railroad has. I will post a picture as soon as I can get a chance; has anyone else done this?

Rock On!

I have not tried this, but I'm sure ill be tempted to after seeing a picture of yours.

If Bachmann ever updated the 2-6-0 with DCC/Sound, I would suggest making one with a steel cab as well.

Ok, here are a few pictures.







Sorry if there's too many, or if it's slow getting up on the screen

Dusten, that looks terrific!  How did you paint (or whatever) the stripes around the window and door frames?

Sadly I wish I could pain that well  Tongue. The red doors, and windows are strait from the factory. I bought the 2-8-0, it just came with it. I did paint the engine with a paint brush and walmart paint, which to my surprise came out great.

But if I were to paint the doors and window striping, I would use a fine, very fine brush, with just a pen head size drop of thick paint, and go around the perimeter of the window, so I don't get paint on the glass; make sure you have a light hand when doing it, if you press down too hard, you will most likely get paint everywhere on the window. The same goes for the doors. If paint does get onto some areas you don't want; take a paper towel, or some other tool you prefer, and wipe away the excess from the area before it drys and stains.

Hope this helps
Rock On!

Hey Dusten, Thats looks great, I think you should leave the red windows because that was prototype practice, but it is your railroad. If you try the cabbage stack from that 2-8-0 and the wood load then you would have a nice looking swamp logger!

Also meant to tell you if you are not willing to repair that 2-8-0 then you can sell it and purchase a beginners air brush for around $30. If you don't have one or have never used one then you will find out that it will open up a whole new world for you.

Thanks Royce!

I'm rather afraid to pick up an air brush because I don't think I would be able to paint like the pros do; I might get paint on all the other areas. I would like to get one though for weathering purposes.

I don't know if it was ever gotton across, from a  previous thread when I blew up; I did say I was sorry, and you did not offend me. I just felt as if my opinion was being attacked as usual. I don't hardly blow up like that, but with all that has happend recently, with my father passing thanksgiving, and my grandfather passing Jan the 2nd, it just overwhelmed me. I also got a rather annoying PM, who accused me of that being an excuse. I'm glad I held my temper on that one, or it would have a rather nasty retort back at him. For he knows nothing about what i am going through.

That set aside; I really appreciate the complements.

Rock On!

Dusten just keep your head up, most of us old guys have been where you are and we are sorry for your loss.

If you get a chance to get your hands on a beginner air brush then go for it, all pros had to start some where, just don't start on your engine..practice on scrap material. remember modeling is good therapy,it has served me well over the years! Grin
