1  Discussion Boards / On30 / Forney to 2-4-0 on: November 25, 2010, 06:09:23 PM
I decided to turn my Forney into a 2-4-0, but before I do this i just wanted to ask if there is any advice or tips that can help with the conversion? anything to watch out for?

that would be cool i would like to see how that looked also.

oh and some new shots of the C&S 71 are posted at this link,127859

I still think she would make a good engine. For On30. Note she has a wagon top boiler and her tender is different then the c-16s

hahah Dustin i like how you take up at least 90% of this thread lol but i have to say the 2-6-0 is not bad.

I think the 2-8-0 EBT had was similar to the C-19s the DRGW, a few other railroads like the Pacific Coast Railroad In cali had some also that where similar. that is the Pacific Coast Railroad.

BLI does not make their c-16s anymore and when they did they where not the best. this is a good time for bachman to make a good engine that can also beet the prices of MMI and get a lot of different verity in the engine

i knew what the O meant i just do not have a car near by to measure now long in Inches to do that math so i figured it would be faster to post here

if the on30 freight cars where full sized how long would they be in Feet? just need a rough estaminet.

make the 2-8-0 that is a C&S one and then make a few others with out the air tanks on top that can resemble more of other railroads. Most narrow gauge railroad's east and west had a few inside frame 2-8-0s

or even more lettering verity. with the different numbers for any railroad. Not all DRGW cars had the flying RIO GRANDE their entire life as the lettering on them and i see no cars yet to go with the ET&WNC 4-6-0s. So just small stuff like that.

I think the lack of a big engine that is not in the $400 range in on30 keeps people out from modeling on30. I do not have the room for a big engine on my layout but I can see people who do have the room not modeling in on30 because they have not big power for their layout. Or even just more 2-6-0s 2-8-0s or 4-6-0s like other medium sized engines or even a bigger shay or a heisler. You can't model a narrow gauge mainline railroad like DRGW, C&S, ET&WNC, EBT or WP&Y or any of the ones that we have in our imagination with just a few small porters and that.

A C&S 2-8-0 would be cool to see. like the 71 that is sitting in Central City Colorado.

it can come looking like that for US Colorado people but its a 2-8-0 so it does not have to be limited to just Colorado engines if bachmann plays around with the idea of it.

I would also love to see one of the T-12s or one of the RGS 4-6-0.

WP&Y is also really the mane attraction for those tourist that come visit Skagway anyways BACK TO MODELS

I think WP&Y would make a great idea for models. They had a wide variety of narrow gauge locomotives and rolling stock. From the earlier models of locomotives like 4-4-0s, 2-6-0, 4-6-0, and 2-8-0s, all built for the WP&Y, yes some look the same as other bachmann rolling stock but for those all they have to do is make new ones with new lettering, and maybe change a few details on the locos them self. Make backdated versions and modern versions for each loco so the appeal for more then just one railroad while still having one with the original look.

here is a list with Pics of early WP&Y steams

here are more WP&Y steamers from the 40s and that showing the 2-8-2s and then engines like the ET&WNC 4-6-0s that went up there, with a little modification the new 4-6-0 can also be a WP&Y one also. WP&Y also had outside frame 4-6-0s that can give possibilities for an American looking and south american looking engine also.

I know for Bman to make all the 4-6-0s and 2-8-0s perfectly like they where would be hard to make and sell but If they get ideas that can work using all the different verity of engines that WP&Y had and make one engine and then its up to us to make it fit for us.

do stuff like a 2-6-0 with the back driver behind the ash pan, do a backdated version and a modern one. They did have modern version of them also. If they do stuff like they even with locos they already have it will add i great variety of engines for us modelers to work with.

Make the 2-8-2s like the WP&Y 70s, the Sumpter Valley Railroad's engines where not to much different then them. Then make ones with lettering for the made up logging lines and other railroad that can work for others too.

that is just my 2cents

] the very first look of them from 1903-the teens with the slope back theners and compound pistons.

14  Discussion Boards / On30 / how about this model for a engine on: February 03, 2009, 10:38:22 PM

It is k-27 463 in the 1920s before it was rebuild to what it is today. I few other verisons of the loco like this have slopeback tenders and also there where ealier types just like this with out the light generator by the cab and it just had the oil box light. Its different then the MMI k-27s and it can fit other peoples layouts for those who want to kitbas it into something or just have it not lettered different. IT does not look like the Rio Grande engine most people have seen.

the bman 2-8-0 is pretty close to what WP&Y 69 is. I know its not exact but you can come out with a 2-8-0 with WP&Y lettering
