The Mysterious Moose Mountain managers hadn't mentioned Moguls ...
... until now that is !

A couple of weeks ago, I caught a severe case of MOGUL MADNESS !

I had thought before this, that the only rusty rods rattling round this railroad, would be my stalwart lil' 0-4-2 Porters.

Then ! ... Without warning ! ... The MOGUL MADNESS fever !!

I simply just HAD to have one.
&
A few days ago Mysterious Moose Mountains new Mogul, steamed into my mailbox !

My new Mogul is the ever popular Bachmann On30 loco.
You U.S. boys seem to have them coming out of the woodwork over there !
In ol' Blightey, the On30 Mogul is a slightly rarer beast, so I found out.

I love her as she is.
But my railroad is a rinkey-dink lil' two-bit short-ass operation ...
... so I have decided that some Mogul miniaturizing, is the order of the day !

I thought I would start a Thread for ALL and ANY info & ideas, on 1:1 Moguls & related models.
Kits, bashes, R.T.R and inspiring proto photos.

So, if your Mogul becomes an 0-6-0 fine.
Or perhaps a 2-4-0
Or even a 2-6-2
A 4-4-0 'American' ?
A 'proper' 2-6-0 is great as well.
Inspiration & ideas, for how to make the most of a Mogul, are all MOST welcome.

Me ?
I'm thinking along the lines of a 2-6-0 or 0-6-0 Mogul bash ...
... shortened as much as possible...
... with either a small 'Glover' style tender or saddle-tank & rear fuel bunker.

We'll see.
Ideas may change.
No rush for the razor saw just yet !

So go on !
Post some photos of your Mogul, kit build, bash or your favorite 1:1 prototype.

MOGUL HEAVEN !

:moose:

Si.

My trusty lil' 1:35 scale guy & 'two yard stick', sizes up the new On30 Mogul ...
... for a bit of 'upscaling' to 1:35n2

Si, check out the old Colorado Central 0-6-0's with 2 & 3 axle tenders and big old stacks! It is late here in Tejas for me to look on de net for a photo but you know how to search. These were 3 footers but would look great as 2 footers. Check them out & let me know what you think. Also, the Mann's Creek Narrow Gauge used 0-6-0's with tenders sitting on a single axle and a 2 axle truck! Very cool lokies.

Howdy Woodie :cb:

Thanks for the pointers !

Although I said 'saddle tank & rear fuel bunker'...
... I actually think that an 0-6-0 with 2-axle tender, could be the way to go.

The saddle tank is kinda OK.
But although shorter perhaps, does tend to look a bit chunky.

HOLY COW !
I haven't seen a 1-axle tender before !
Except perhaps on the 'Birdwater & Raspberry' !! ;)
Sounds T O O C O O L !

:bg:

In terms of a 'genuine' 2-6-0 Mogul with saddle tank ...
... this funky ol' junk, could take some beating !

If you're gonna have BIG headlamps ! ... Get a BIG hat !! :cb:

;)

Si.

No idea where or when.
Nice though.

Si,

I feel your "Mogul Madness". I currently have five of the Bachmann On30 2-6-0s sitting on my shelf, a sixth is in the mail as I type, and I am currently high bidder on a seventh.

They are just so cool. Looking forward to see what you do with yours!

Rick

Si, the tender I wrote about had a single axle wheelset in journals and a 2 axle truck under the tender. Get it? Of course, if you want a single axle under the tender, it's YOUR locomotive!

Har de har
Woodie
