Anybody feel like modelling THIS prototype?

It's a mogul that was converted to a V8 power plant.

Build it... and then enter it in the NMRA Nats. That would be EPIC!.

Hi Eric :wave:


You seem to have the knack of finding pix of the kind of ruined rusty wrecks that only Freerails top rust researcher, Jose, can match !


With a number of 1:35 mutant military kits, a Bachy Mogul & a firm belief in 'there's a prototype for everything' I am considering what monsterous mangled contraption could be possible !


After a nice polite 2-6-2ST though !


:moose:


Si.


Jeees ... THAT THING is just unspeakable !

Well done !!

It may be a 4-6-0 but certainly you could build this from the old 2-6-0.....

It can be done except in my case it was using an HO Mantua Tyco 10 wheeler as a chassis.

HOLY COW ! :shocked:


When I said at the start of the Thread, if your Mogul turns into, 'this & that', I had NO IDEA that this kind of rampant rusted reckneckisms would appear ! ;)


Woodies worst nightmares & Dougs AWESOME gas-guzzler are SCARY to say the least ! :cool:


Eric, you have taken the Thread to a new depth of lawlessness which WE NEED HERE ! :bg:


Please delve into your rusty archives & sell us some more clapped out garbage ! ;)


Some crazy dude like Doug ( or me ? ) might even make a model of it !!

The only other steam-to-diesel locomotive conversion I know of is Mutual Plywood's #54 Heisler.  Mr. Greene posted a good shot of it a few years ago:




I also know about the Kitson-Still locomotive, it would start on steam then switch over to diesel to take advantage of steam's starting power and diesel's fuel economy.
