|The Mysterious Moose Mountain managers hadn't mentioned Moguls ...
... until now that is !
A couple of weeks ago, I caught a severe case of MOGUL MADNESS !
I had thought before this, that the only rusty rods rattling round this railroad, would be my stalwart lil' 0-4-2 Porters.
Then ! ... Without warning ! ... The MOGUL MADNESS fever !!
I simply just HAD to have one.
A few days ago Mysterious Moose Mountains new Mogul, steamed into my mailbox !
My new Mogul is the ever popular Bachmann On30 loco.
You U.S. boys seem to have them coming out of the woodwork over there !
In ol' Blightey, the On30 Mogul is a slightly rarer beast, so I found out.
I love her as she is.
But my railroad is a rinkey-dink lil' two-bit short-ass operation ...
... so I have decided that some Mogul miniaturizing, is the order of the day !
I thought I would start a Thread for ALL and ANY info & ideas, on 1:1 Moguls & related models.
Kits, bashes, R.T.R and inspiring proto photos.
So, if your Mogul becomes an 0-6-0 fine.
Or perhaps a 2-4-0
Or even a 2-6-2
A 4-4-0 'American' ?
A 'proper' 2-6-0 is great as well.
Inspiration & ideas, for how to make the most of a Mogul, are all MOST welcome.
I'm thinking along the lines of a 2-6-0 or 0-6-0 Mogul bash ...
... shortened as much as possible...
... with either a small 'Glover' style tender or saddle-tank & rear fuel bunker.
Ideas may change.
No rush for the razor saw just yet !
So go on !
Post some photos of your Mogul, kit build, bash or your favorite 1:1 prototype.
MOGUL HEAVEN !
My trusty lil' 1:35 scale guy & 'two yard stick', sizes up the new On30 Mogul ...
... for a bit of 'upscaling' to 1:35n2
