Mike-here's something different. Although it is a bit smaller-smaler drivers, driver spacing-I just placed a Mantua (Tyco) 2-6-2 on top of a 3/8" (1:32) drawing for a Baldwin 2-6-2t in Narrow Gauge to No Man's Land and it appears that a smaller version of such a loco could be built from this. My 2-6-2 has nice valve gear and with some work might build into a creditable model, even with the smallish frame, etc. I have no plans to build this loco, I was just "thinking" and offered this idea. Yep, it would require some work (everything except the mechanism) but might just do the job.

Woodie

I should probably get myself one of those, Woodie... for a future project. That conversion is probably more than I should take on at this stage of the game.

Alright...I'm  back looking at the prototype photos of the Brookville. I think I made my exhaust come up through the fuel tank. That's a boo boo and a half. Oh well, I'll pretend that only one side of that is fuel tank and the other half is a shroud.

Oops.

Hey, an album of assorted Brookvilles, http://www.northeast.railfan.net/diesel108.html

And as a point of trivia, Brookville is still around http://www.brookvillecorp.com/history.asp

Yep and Yep. I actually knew the exhaust wasn't stock. It was added because well because I wanted one and this isn't really a scale model of any particular Brookville and I thought it looked cool. I still think it looks cool. It might have been a little more cool if I had placed it differently but such as it is, it's staying that way now.

Mike-

I thought that it was one of the rare Brookvilles that ran on kerosene, which requires heating to run in a gas engine.

Bubble, bubble, toil and----KA_BOOM!

Sigh... That's where older guys have me. They know this stuff because they used it when they were young. My oldest car was a 1973 Monte Carlo. There was no fuel tank anywhere near the firewall on that car or any I've had since. Oh well.... Live and learn says I.

Thanks, Si.

I haven't had much time to play with trains lately or I'd have some more detail on it. Soon.....
