Has anyone done a conversion of the Bachmann outside frame 2-8-0 into an engine SIMILAR to a SR&RL 2-6-0 or 2-6-2? If so, can you give me some hints?

Thanks,
Roger

WOW!!!!  Scot...........your pages and work are unbelievable!! I just managed to get a quick glance at the conversion and the passenger car conversion but I can see I'll be spending a lot of time there!

Thanks for the help and leading the way. I don't know if I'll do the 2 foot thing or stay with On30 yet. I kinda like the very narrow and top hevy look of the pure SR&RL though. I don't know if I have the skills to convert a Forney or 2-8-0.

Looks like I need to find a modelers table saw too. I agree that 12' of parallel cuts with a hand saw is way too much!

Congratulations on your beautiful work and for the help.
