    As the DL535 were also used in South America, I do believe it would be of interest. as for WP&Y cars with the number of X Colorado cars that were shipped for war service a decent train could be made up for the units to haul.  Railmaster Export made Sn3 the Anvil Ore Cars (a six pack that I have yet to assemble) which will oneday be in service on my South American Railway.

   For a smaller OF Mikado consider the Balwin 2-8-2s built for Patagonia SN 55429-55453, a few are still in service on the Esquel Line.
     For a IF 4-6-0 Baldwin SN 40871 & 40872 Built for the Este de Minas in Brazil
     And for Super Power Mitsubishi IF 2-10-2 (20 Built) a few rebuilt for service in Argentina, films of them with a 60 car coal drag are impressive!.

   The boiler length was extended, which allowed the firebox to sit over the trailing truck. The 3 photos are all 3/4 views, but the extra length is easy to make out. The cab was shortened front and rear, with door closed
and a window installed.  An Oil Tender replaced the orginal SHAY bunker and Tender.

   In Brazil 2 80Ton SHAYS were rebuilt to 4-6-2 Pacific's and the Third one was rebuilt into a 2-6-0+0-6-2T
 SHAY-Kitson Meyer. One of the Pacific's is in a Museum there. Photo of the 2-6-0+0-6-2T is in
 Narrow Gauge off the Beaten Path

    If I was not well into building a passenger train, I would take a look at the Scenery Unlimited S Scale
  passenger car roofs and underframes. (Aug 2012 MR, pg 16, has a review). they are darn close to the Bachmann Passenger car, which I have also assembled in to my Local Passenger service.

      The Rio Turbo  (Argentina) has rebuilt a couple of their IF 2-10-2s for tourist service

       2&1/2FT gauge Articulated Locomotives 2-6-0+0-6-2T
                                                                 2-6-6-2

  Actually Baldwin built at least two 3Ft gauge Pacifics SN 41677 & 41678, Outside frame.
   Small tender but a nice looking engine neverless.

   Swany

    Glad to be of help

    The hoist itself  is beautiful, however the skid leaves a lot to be desired (no NBW detail) a new skid is
 relativity easy to build and detail for the hoist/skidder to be set on. NBW detail could be added to the orginal skid which would improve it's appearence a lot!.

  On the hoist, the shutoff valve should be turned so the valve handle is vertical and a loop of chain  added,
    to open and close it, yet to find a O scale figure with arms long enough to reach it <G>.
