Title: Bigger Drivers for the Bachmann 4-4-0
Post by: hminky on December 24, 2007, 03:03:43 PM
Why not a 4-4-0 with the drivers from the Mogul?

I did this using Bowser HO 69" drivers, 38" for O scale. The Mogul drivers will fit with only slight tooling modifications to the 4-4-0.

I used the Bowser drivers for an upcoming web article. Not everyone has mogul drivers at hand.

Looks great Harold!
  Definately closer to the classic 4-4-0 look I think most of us were hoping for.  I am looking forward to reading your web article.
