QUOTE (Saint Johnstoun @ 11 Jul 2008, 17:57) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Thanks for the thought. I produced a Pennsy I1 by extending a Mehano 2-8-2 chassis and using a spare Bachmann K4 body once. I can get spare wheelsets from Bachmann so that may be the best route - the boiler can be extended using scratch built parts from plastic tube and card.

The problem is of course that the wheelbase of the 2-8-0 is not equal over all four sets of drivers whilst with the 2-10-0 is.

Its a great pity the 2-10-0 promised by Dapol? later Bachmann never appeared.

*** You clearly have the good hands on skills for it so it might be worth contacting DJH - their 2-10-0 WD makes up pretty well and being whitemetal with brass cab and detail will pull the side out of the layout room.... certainly not a more expensive proposition than 2x 2-8-0's I'd think either.
