OK, I surrender (mainly because I am really scared of what else you may pull from your bag of tricks)

COMPROMISE TIME! I am just going to buy the bachmann 2-8-0,  even though it is not all that great outside frame wise, but it's growing on me, so, I shall buy one and upgrade it.

Yes but that diesel is Standard Gauge, though there is a narrow gauge connection - would you believe me if I told you it was ex-DRGW?

Incidentally, in a much rebuilt form, that loco still survives, derelict.

This would be SOMETHING. Looks like an old tender had a tractor attached on. Wonder where the cab came from, those rounded corner doors are somewhat unusual. Of course nothing short of a version of the original drive system would do it justice!. Just happens that I have some sort of fixation for this kind of concocted stuff.
