What did they do? Is that a Shay boiler? The drive train isn't old Ephiram's design for sure! Actually, the above loco looks like a "Mason Bogie" with another engine under the bunker where a 3 axle truck would "normally" be. Whatever it is called, it looks like a dandy way to use a couple of the Bachmann 2-6-0's, provided smaller drivers could be used.
Just like it has been said-"There's a prototype for everything".

Yes! it is a SHAY boiler, LIMA SN #3185, #'s 3183 & 3184 were converted to 4-6-2s. Built for Estrada de Ferro Osete de Minas in 1922. Osete #302, believed converted in 1930 and
retired in 1930, apparently not a great success!. Only known
photo.
The two Pacific's faired a bit better, #339 converted in 1941, destroyed by boiler explosion 1955, #340 converted
1942, retired 1965, on display.

1930, you say?
Hmm... the year the RC&RS is set in.
I say maybe one of those 2-6-6-2's made it's way to South Mississippi.I sure have enough Moguls to donate a couple to the bash.

Ken, do you have the link to the original image? Looks like the one you posted is scaled.

White Pass & Yukon Pictures
scroll down to Narrow Gauge Export pictures

scroll down to 2-6-0+0-6-2

Bruce has collected a fair number of photos covering numerous wheel arrangements, so there are lots to look at.

Well, it took some time but I found it.

Here is the link: http://narrowmind.railfan.net/Shay-Kitson-Meyer-Oestes.jpg
Not much more detail though.

Well ... the ol' Mogul reared it's ugly head the other day !

I got a good telling orf from Woodie :cb: as well ... For sticking it's cab on my Porter ! :shocked: 

He was right ... It did look pretty iffy ! :pimp:


The tender & razor-saw may well meet up at some point in the future as well.





I've had ideas & parts for a turntable of some sort for a while.

The plastic-sections are from a OO/HO kit by 'Wills' called a 'Vari-Girder Bridge'.

It has plastic RIVETED SECTIONS as well ! :bg:


I had drawn it in length as short as possible, modeled on an On30 Shay wheelbase.

But the Mogul converted to a 2-6-2T would need a longer turntable.

So I tried to re-figure the number of plastic-sections needed.



:P



Si.


I have been looking at 2-wheel pony-trucks for a 2-6-2T.

A 2nd matching Bachmann one would be nice ... but ...

Mmm . . .

There are just TOO MANY cool :cool: prototypes for a Mogul BASH !


Having become a bit obsessed by 2-6-2ST locos ...

... I came across this research pic.





Perhaps an 0-6-0ST loco would be a bit better for my 'compact' rolling stock line ?

Not having the 2 pony trucks to fit in at each end, really does save quite a bit of length.

Mmm ... L:



:moose:

It's a bit chipped and battered but its still almost all there..after 40 plus years.


Q: Why was Davy Crockett such a good scout??
A: 'coz he had 3 ears - a left ear, a right ear, and a wild front-ear :bg:
