Personally,  
 
I think it would be pretty nice if the they converted #142's tender not to have the slope, rather just turn it into a box. It'd look a lot more "American".

I for one think it is kind of neat that 142 keeps her chinese tender, you know what would be be somthing if we got another  2-8-2, but this time a  JS class and turn it into a CNJ or Pennsy or maybe even a DL&W 2-8-2. There is a pic of a JS class here http://www.multipowerinternational.com/standard.html

Minus the Harley-Davidson paint scheme does this Railking 2-8-0 look at all like #60 of the BR&W ?

Alot of things would have to be removed or changed(I could write a list if you want), most of those things look like they can't be changed. Why don't you be the Judge of how much that looks like 60!
