QUOTE (Saint Johnstoun @ 10 Jul 2008, 18:15) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>I'm looking at the possibility of doing a carve up to create a
WD 2-10-0 from two 2-8-0s which would give me a spare tender!
It's an interesting thought. The parts you require for the WD 2-10-0 are the wide firebox section of the body, which will have to be scratchbuilt; and a ten coupled chassis block and an extra (ideally flangeless) wheelset for the centre driver. Wouldn't it be more economical to purchase a spare wheel set, rather than a whole second loco as a donor for this part? Are you planning to extend the 2-8-0 chassis by grafting an extra piece of framing on for the trailing axle?
