* A great old locomotive to make is the B&O Hayes 10 wheeler. #198 is drawn here on page 361.
* Now long ago I made one using a Tyco 4-6-0 as a starting point. I replaced the drivers with Varney ones from an Old Lady 2-8-0. I re-drilled the third axel to make their spacing all equal. The body was built over a Tyco 4-6-0 boiler to make sure of a perfect fit. The tender is reworked with a fireman's platform and shelter added. I kept in my collection for over 10 years. It is gone now. Only some old photos remain.
