Thanks for the info...I gave the wrong number though...I'm interested in DCC #2, HK Porter c/n 814, which was the sister engine to ACCo #4 (c/n 815).  Sorry for the confusion.

There is a 1:48 scale drawing of this loco in the 2004 FINESCALE RAILROADER  Logging, Mining, & Industrial Annual. Larry Hargis did the work on this-page 43. This is a cool little lokie, by using an On30 Bachmann 0-4-0t Porter as a basis, a very close replica could be built in 3/8" (1:32) scale...running on On30 (16.5MM) track, it would be right on for 20" gauge. Hope this helps. The loco is still around, I believe in Phoenix.     Woodie

Woodie, thanks again for the info...Larry was kind enough to send over some drawings, so it looks like I'm on my way. 

I'm trying to do this in 1:48 scale, using a Grandt line kit as a starting point, but most of the loco will be entirely scratchbuilt...should be a challenging project.

Cool-if you ever get to Dallas, let me know and we can run some ore to the smelter.

Thanks for the invite, would love to!  IIRC, you're running R/C power, right? 

An in-person RC tutorial would be great...I also have an On3 Porter project in the works for a wood-rail East Texas logging tram, hoping to power it with R/C.

I'll pm you my contact info so we can get that ore shipped off sometime!

ATTENTION ALL FREERAILS PERSONNEL

It would appear that one Woodrow Clyde Greene has found yet another kindred soul!

Antennas will be extended and batteries charged!

Ore will be moved!

The smelter smelt!

No telling what all this might lead to-----



Herbie :old dude:

Herb is dead serious and Dr, Smith is cowering in the corner.
