   He ( The Guy who owns these trains) said he did a 60 but it was the wrong wheel arangement and did not look close, he even claimed to have sent a letter to MTH asking them to make a 60, they said no. I think the main reason why 60 Has not been Modeled after yet is cause of her extended somoke box(witch I think gives her more character).  
    It almost feels as if I am braging for some one else I have to find his e-mail, and get him to join the forms!

I would try to make a O-scale #60 using a Weaver die-cast 2-8-0:

Just put a top headlight on and you've pretty much got it!
