Redwings. Go to the thread titled #60. Great pix on there. On page two Mr. Fusco posted a builder's photo. That will really help you.

Why don't you be the Judge of how much that looks like 60!

 
Because I'm not that great at judging that sort of stuff !  
 
Besides I haven't seen #60 in like 5-6 years (the last time I was on the BR&W) !

6 or so years ago she was pulling the trains, if you don't care you can put the MTH 2-8-0 in BRW and see what you think. Here is what she looks like today. FYI the head light is higher up on 60, but that probilby can be changed.

One note. In my previous post, reply 81, I forgot to mention the smokebox extension. Compare the builder's photo to BRW pictures of 60 and look at the position of her stack to the smokebox cover. That extension gives 60 a very different look when compared to many other locomotives.

I am sure there has to be a way of removing the lettering. There were alot of things in the new lionel catalog that could be turned into BRW pototypes, such as the 0-6-0T, the GP7, or even the Reading cabouse.

if you did, then there would be a paint mark and its metal so youre trying to paint on metal but it wont match the metal look ...you would probably have to paint the whole engine to make it match or use some type of remover to get the letters off

Hey Everyone I thought that this would make a better #60 than the Railking 2-8-0 I was originally looking at using besides all I'd have to do is put the number plate on the front of the smoke box, change the engine #, add a 2 wheel piolt truck and paint the # on the side of the cab and on the rear of the tender, raise the back up light a little, paint part of the window green and paint BLACK RIVER on the sides of the tender
 

 
What do you guys think ?

redwings, i had the same engine except in NYC and it would be an "ok" substitute, but the tender would need work and you would need to add something to hold the front wheels

That's exactly what I was thinking plus the fact that it has 2 operating coupler as opposed to only having the one on the tender like most do !
