Title: Archibald The Mainland Engine Project!
Post by: Jock The New Engine on July 09, 2007, 04:26:51 PM
The British Railway 2-6-0 engine is in the past now.  I'm taking on a new challenge!  Archibald The Mainland Engine from The Railways Of Sodor - Episode 7: The Visitor!  Here's a picture of what he looks like.

Since i'm low on cash, i'm making him out of an old Hogwarts Express engine that I have, I'm using some stuff from the Wooden Railway Thomas toys for him as well.  If anyone would like to see the episode (parts 1 and 2), it's on youtube.  Also, if anyone would like to make any suggestions, please feel free to do so!

Hello!
For a number, I would sugest "51946." I chose this number because James is number 5 of the NWR and 1946 is the year her was first introduced.
For a logo on the tender, I propose this:

That's right, this board used to be the 2-6-0 Project board, but i turned it into the Archibald Project board.

Archibald is a Royal Scot 4-6-0 in BR Green. He is nothing like a GWR Hall. I suggest you get one of these:

Just get the EXACT loco only and stick a gordon face on it.

Like I said, i'm low on cash, so I don't have the money to buy something like that from Europe since I live in the USA.

Well are you going to make a scratch face or take one off the wooden railway trains?
