Dear Mr Bachmann,

Here is a loco that could be kitbashed ( which I intend to do ) of the 1:22.5 Scaled Bachmann Columbia and the Bachmann 0-4-0 PORTER

Central Espartaco sugar mill - no.1 Porter 0-4-2 of 1884 This Loco is 30 Inch Gauge


" Central Espartaco no.1, the Porter built 0-4-2 of 1884, had all the features typical of an American built loco of this period with a tall chimney, domes and a bell. H K Porter built many small locos and this 2ft 6in gauge example must be one of the nicest they built. "

1/24 Scale ( 1:22.5 Scale close enough ) on O Gauge Track is 30 Inch Gauge

Would be great if you introduced 1:22.5 Scale Locos for O Gauge Track.
