HO Steam Engine Dimensions

greenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I am looking for a few key dimensions of HO scale model steam locomotives in order to locate suitible candidates for conversion to ACL or SAL locomotives. I am hoping some of our more active modelers or someone with access to a well stocked hobby shop might be able to provide the following dimensions.

Bachman 2-8-0: Smokebox/boiler diameter and distances between driving wheel centers.

Model Power "Old Timer" 4-6-0/2-8-0: Smokebox/boiler diameter (Classic Baldwin boiler!)

Model Die Casting "Old Timer" 2-8-0: Smokebox/boiler diameter

Thanks in advance for any data. Buddy

http://www.dnaco.net/~gelwood/ This is the url for George Elwood's Fallen Flag Photo site... scroll down to Seaboard, then down past the models to "Steam Loco Drawings". This is a copy of the Master Mechanic's line drawings from 1929. The Fallen Flag site is one of the best I have found yet!
