Title: Forney Valve Gear
Post by: Maine 2 Foot on May 06, 2007, 09:01:38 AM
For some reason I could not reply to a post regarding the forney, so here is a quick finale...

The comment was made  " i had bought the 0n30 2-8-0 that was loosely based on the engine on display at the old edaville rr. now my reasoning was here is another engine based loosely on the forney at edaville (no  i assumed that the same detail would be applied to the Bachman 0n30 forney. I obviously was wrong to expect the same attention to detail as the 2-8-0 that was offered as another generic model ) "

Well, the forney was not based on the locomotives at Edaville. The only thing they have in common is the type of locomotive. The B&SR forneys that were at Edaville are similar in proportion and valve gear to the #10 of the Sandy River. They are much larger, heavier, longer than the models that Bachmann produced. So your reasoning is flawed and the comment is unfair to Bachmann.
