... some of the "grasshopper"-type of production locomotives (0-4-0, vertical boiler, outside frame) like the Tom Thumb or the Atlantic.  I really enjoy the early years of railroading in America, but all you can get are the "one-off" locomotives like the DeWitt Clinton, Rocket, Best Friend of Charleston, Prussia, etc.  How about some "mass-produced" early ones?  And the type of cars that would run with them.  (A visit to the B&O Museum may be in order, Mr. Bachmann...)

Maybe for a first run, the workings could be cast plastic or resin, and later (or better quality) runs might have moving piston "arms" and such.

And available in DC as well as DCC, for those of us whom it doesn't make economical sense to switch our line of products from one to the other.

Does anyone know the exact measurements of the Bachmann Thomas? Trying to get measurements for someone to make a custom version of it for shapeways

Scroll down to Louisiana Southern no. 10.

 Iím in the middle of turning a 4-4-0 into one of these. Iíve got a Richmond 4-4-0 boiler shell to harvest just about everything parts wise.  The parts catalog has several pilots from different engines that are suitable.  Many old 4-4-0s were rebuilt around 1900 much like this for another 20 or more years of useful service on branchlines and short lines.

Those options used to be called the ďSpectrum ď Line.  It cost extra money.  Apparently the market didnít support it, as much as serious modelers like myself wanted it.

Reset cv 3 to 100 and 4 to 50 for more prototypical performance. Half of each if you want more instant control.

Nice Fred model, mate. Your timing's decent; I made this version just a couple months ago.

Thanks for that wonderful information. I'll look to see about the new stories from Christopher.

I won a standard On30 caboose on Ebay for $17.50 + $5.99 shipping. I will use the lighting stuff out of it for the logging caboose. By the time I would buy the stuff separately, this will probably be cheaper and easier.
