LIONEL 0-4-2T

THE BACHMANN COLUMBIA 0-4-2T DRIVE IS MOUNTED UNDER THE LIONEL 0-6-0T .

The Cab Side Dimensions are from the C P HUNTINGTON.

The Cab Side Window ARCHED Frames are from the JPEG IMAGE

I guess that I must mount the BACHMANN PORTER CLEMENTINE DRIVERS TO THE BACHMANN 2-4-2T COLUMBIA DRIVE AXLES.


Any Advice is Welcomed.

Norman, those are cool, my next project after the Mason Bogie is either a Huntington, which Delton built one in brass, or a 2-6-2 tank engine like the black hills central RR uses. I have a aristo 2-4-2 rogers which has a separate motor blocks for each driver which you lend itself to the Huntington 4-2-4, + I would be left with an excellent start to the 2-6-2 saddle tanker, just looking for the 0-6-0 drive and leaning toward one of the LGB 0-6-2 motor blocks. I think for the Hunting cab I would go more for the 4-4-0 cab style of the kalamazoo style engine, but do what pleases the eye. keep me advised as if I do a Huntington I will have an extra rogers motor block left over, Bill

Norman, I'm always interested in weird builds like those.

I suspect the problem with using the B'mann 2-4-2 is that it wasn't a very successful model in the first place. I understand the drive is likely to cause trouble.
Nor have I heard of anyone swapping drivers between B'mann locos. Not sure it can't be done, as they often seem to be attached the same way. Maybe it's because you can't get them without buying a whole loco. B'mann parts will sell you the complete Porter chassis - for $238 !!
