What a project!

You have a lot more patience than I do.

What kind of drive are you thinking of using?


Consider this an easy one,
as I have at least a complete body to work on.... 

The real tough ones start at zero...
Maybe with a rubber mold!

I think I will power the rear truck only,
so I may use a plain six wheel Central Valley heavyweight passenger truck up front.

Not quite sure what this thing had in the rear,
I have many pictures of those cars on file, but none that shows the rear truck in detail.

It may be a smaller adaption of a truck like the Baldwin AS-616 rode on,
or maybe a tender truck?

Many trucks of small electric locomotives were in fact tender trucks,
with electric motors attached underneath.

So this would make sense.
