Title: Turning a 10 wheeler into a Mogul
Post by: Bruce Chandler on October 09, 2007, 03:02:38 PM
The Bachmann Anniversary Edition 10 wheeler  was the first locomotive that I bought for the Jackson & Burke Railroad (http://www.jbrr.com/ (http://www.jbrr.com/)).  While I liked it a lot, after awhile, it never fit in with my 1:20 roster.

Earlier, I had upscaled a 10 wheeler to 1:20, and I didn't want to do the same thing again:

I decided to make the 10 wheeler into a 1:20 Mogul.   I had it out on the layout today for some pictures.    I'm very pleased with how it turned out, and it runs just great!

Bruce:

The locomotive and the whole layout are very impressive. Great work!
