Hi Everyone,


Years ago I came across this Author David Fletcher article,


The Phil Jensen Story Delton To Hartland - narrowgaugerails ...
www.narrowgaugerails.com › index_htm_files › ThePhilJensenStory



By David Fletcher with Phil Jensen



On Page 13 of 38 is Pictured the DELTON, for LIONEL, 0-6-0T .


On Page 16 of 38 is Pictured the, Never Manufactured, DELTON Prototype 0-4-2T .


Phil Jensen did explain to myself that the Cab of the DELTON Prototype 0-4-2T is

the Cab of the DELTON C P HUNTINGTON and


THAT NO DRAWING EXISTS !


I tried & tried many times to redraw the DELTON Prototype 0-4-2T by measuring over & over


to the proportions of the DELTON Prototype 0-4-2T photograph.


Then last Night, I FINALLY CLUED IN !


The, Never Manufactured , DELTON Prototype Beautiful 0-4-2T

was later released as the DELTON, for LIONEL, 0-6-0T

redesigned by using the LIONEL Corp. Horizontal & Vertical Compression Distortion Method.


The DELTON Prototype Beautiful 0-4-2T has a 1.5 Inch Diameter Smokebox.

The DELTON LIONEL 0-6-0T has a 2.0 Inch Diameter Smokebox.


The LIONEL Corp. Horizontal & Vertical Compression Distortion Method explains why

the Side View of the LIONEL 0-6-0T locomotive appears to be of

two different Scales, one Vertical and one Horizontal.



I will try to post my Cut & Scotch Taped

LIONEL 0-6-0T Photograph Image as the DELTON Prototype Beautiful 0-4-2T

later this week.



Possibly LIONEL was concerned with the 0-4-2T Trailing Rear Single Axle Derailing in Reverse.

That potential problem could have been easily resolved by

Simply Fixing the Trailing Rear Single Axle Swingarm to be RIGID

as the 0-4-2T wheelbase is no longer than that of the 0-6-0T.

The cow catcher and cylinders seem to be the same parts on the Lionel 0-6-0T and Delton 0-4-0T / 0-4-2T images but everything else appears completely different.

Norman, so I get you are in love with that Delton prototype that was never produced. I get it.

But are you trying to make one? With all the questions you have asked on several forums, it seems so, but things like making a chassis, ordering and finishing wheels, are you up to this?

I'm also unclear on what cutting up a photograph of a Lionel to make it look like the Deton prototype accomplishes though, can you explain?

Norman. Why don't you just extend an LGB 0-4-0 (Americanized) to a 0-4-2 with bunker similar to the proposed Delton model?
Modify the cab and domes too. The LGB model is cheap as chips without the tender as they were common in sets.
