Here's a little inspiration for those who are contemplating a C-19 purchase. This isn't Bachmann's C-19, but a scratchbuilt one I just finished. It's a model of EBT #7, which was built to the same Baldwin drawings as the D&RG locos Bachmann modeled. I'm posting this for no other reasons than to get your creative juices flowing. By and large, my loco is pretty much identical to Bachmann's. The only difference is the trim; different cab, pilot, stack--all elements that are easily changed by the modeler. There were a large number of inside-frame 2-8-0s running on US narrow gauge lines across the country. With just some minor work, you can easily morph Bachmann's model into one of them.



More images and a description of how I built the loco can be found on my blog. Click the link in my signature or head to http://tuscarorarailroad.blogspot.com

Kevin,

I did a EBT for a review in GR with my 2-8-0 drive, with 36" drivers, etc.

Wheel spacing is equal, rather uneven as in your prototype version.
