Frank,
Kitbashed 4-8-0, I see it now....at first, it appears to be a 2-8-0!!!
 
As for the kitbash, what was the boiler done, from? Another custom made cab as well?

Frank,
Well it turned out awesome! Great modeling job on that one....I'm going to do the same as you and scratchbuild a cab to fit the need I have with the B&O Camelback, when I start it.....
 
This is all good for inspiration!

Thank you John, I am glad you like it. I remember having a Tyco 4-8-0 old timer with a broken body. I knew that the CNJ had camelbacks of this wheel arrangement. K1 class. I compaired the measurements to a drawing of a K1 and found them to be the same. Even the spacing of the offset rear driver was the same. So I looked in my parts box and there was a gilbert 6 volt AC Hudson with no chance of ever being repowered by me. So I played around with it. You see the results.

Today I changed my roundhouse storage tracks and their occupants. I temporarily removed a 3 stall roundhouse and filled the open tracks with articulated locomotives. I'll be posting photos of what now fills the roundhouse service area tracks.  
 
* These are my railroads heavyweights.
PRR Q2, PRR HH1, N&W Y3B, B&O EM-1, D&H 4-6-6-4, PRR T1, Clinchfield 4-6-6-4, Big Boy, PRR CC1, PRR HH2, PRR HH@ to be HC1.
 There is also a group of 2-6-6-2 tendered, and tank locomotives not in the photo.

That PRR,  HH-1 is an interesting critter! And needless to say I have a "blind" love for the EM-1 which I know, yours is a brass Akane!
 
Pennsy Q-2, is that the 6-8-6? I can't remember which class that Q-2 is....

Hi John. It is sometimes called a 4-4-6-4. But really a 4-10-4 rigid frame with duplex drive. The Q2 drives the front 2 axels with a one set of cylinders, and the rear 3 drivers with a second set of cylinders. Many of the models of the engine are made with articulated drives. The same is done on the T1. Also a duplex drive engine with a rigid frame.

So the Q-2 is a Duplex drive steamer..... The PRR S-1 was the 6-8-6.....Its jogging my memory here....
 
The HH-1 is a true articulated tho..... what was that? A 2-8-8-2? I think....

John as far as Pennys is concerned a 2-8-8-2 is a HH class, a 2-8-8-0 is a HC class, and a 0-8-8-0 is a CC class. That covers the 8 wheel articulates that PRR had.

Frank,
Thanks for clarification on the PRR HH class, 2-8-8-2's...... I had thought but was unsure of it.  
 
The shot of the EM-1, is awesome. good runner for an old Akane?

Hi John glade you liked the info. My EM-1 also runs smoothly. As a after thought I am calling thie gathering of articulates the  
 " Frankford Railfest 2013"  
  To bad I think of these thing always to late. My Winton needs to much work to be out with the others. Looking for a tender to use. I still have a good Hudson trailing truck. Maybe some decapod parts. Not sure what I have spare.  
I am going to make another Cary, Penn line, 2 10-2 PRR N1. I have a Cary body with a removed cab and no trailing truck. Cab is gone. The drive has the Cary  extension already on it. I have a complete long distance tender for it already.

Frank that's awesome for Frankford Railfest 2013!  
 
As for the Winton, I may have a tender for that, BUT its not brass! Its from a Arbour Models kit! (If interested let me know!)
 
IF you need ANY parts for the N-1 2-10-2, let me know as I have staggering parts to those.... For another project, I was building a Western Maryland I-2, 2-10-0....
 
SO, let me know what all parts you may need that you don' have and we can work out a "parts trade"

John. with the N1 and parts. Cary supplies a air tank with a stand to mount on the front pilot. which for modelers who accept the basics or Cary as built, would work for them. It is way to sparse, and void of detail. I found my first Cary N1 almost in the same condition as this one that I have now. Here is how my first one came out. I still have it. And I have posted photos of it in a few places on the Tyco forum site. I built a second one which had a complete Cary body as the first and now my third have no cab. On the second I took a cab from a Bachmann PRR K4 and installed it . It came out very good. As to the front pilot I completely made a the front pilots tank c shaped raised platform with supports and ladder. I think it also came out good. If I find a photo I'll post it.

Please do! I'd like to see the way it looks, I don't think tho, I have that detail of the tanks and such for the pilot deck.....I know of the ones your mentioning here, and yes, they are sparse looking from Cary, but the brass Cal-Scale detail, looks MUCH better!

Frank,
That detail you need looks as tho, I could make it from brass turned on my lathe!!!!
 
Any way to get a few different "shots" of it, and such? Do you have pilot that it shows as well? I ask as I may... NOT sure I have the pilot, but that tank detail, I know I can make!

 John the tank is made from a piece of brass tubing. I have more. The side are filed down wheels from some broken truck in a junk box. The valve gear hanger is from how knows where. You can see it doesn't fit the curve of the boiler. The cylinders were changed because I wanted bigger ones. They are also from my parts box. it came off of a Aristo-craft 2-8-2 with a broken frame. The walkway is just plastic. the headlight generator number board and pilot marker  lamps are all from Bowser. That is what I changed on the front end.
 Also the decapod drive that I will use has a pilot on it.
