Heh...what's not to love with 20 inch gauge? And switchbacks? Nothing better! I look forward to watching your progress.

I actually took a Bachmann 0-4-0 Porter, regauged the wheels to 20", and ground the frame down to accept the narrowed wheelsets. I haven't figured out how to modify the drivetrain, but it rolls just fine. It can be done!
