Title: New Bachmann Indy 2-6-0 product design of a narrow gauge style 2-6-0.
Post by: norman on November 11, 2017, 04:34:05 PM

Dear Mr. Bachmann:

Here is a line drawing of an Allen Models 2-6-0 design to modify the existing Bachmann Indy 2-6-0 as a new product release of a narrow gauge style 2-6-0 . Use the existing unmodified Indy tender. Remove the sand dome adjacent to the smoke stack.

Hi Mr. Bachmann:

If Bachmann Trains decides to produce this locomotive, I hope that this narrow gauge style 2-6-0 locomotive will be built at the same scaled size as the present Indy is at. It would be great to have a new locomotive product that would fit in well with your J&S wood coaches.

This is a really neat locomotive.  Needless to say I like it.
