What's this?!!

Postby matt1471 » Mon Jan 09, 2012 10:01 pm

Picked this up tonight from the Model and Toy Fair. Its obviously missing its trailing pony truck and wheels, but is an 0-6-2.

Closest I can get is a Webb 0-6-2t
Any further advances??

Being new to O gauge, I want to complete this for decorative purposes....where is a good place to buy all the various parts??

Thanks in advance!
Matt

From the pics I've looked at the dome is too short for a Webb.

Wheels look like they are from a Lima 4F so possibly the entire chassis is in which case it is likely to be a 'model in the style of....' rather than an exact replica.
Regardless it looks like with some work and a lick of paint it will display well.

My father-in-law thought it might be a Webb, but as you say, the dome appears a little small so I think it's wrong.

I just want some guidance as to what to base it on as its definitely going to be 'in the style of'!!

Will be BR black with red lining and Late Emblem. Just gotta find a number for it now!!

Looks like a coal tank to me as well... Just with a dome and chimney from the scrap box shoved on... Defo a Lima chassis!!

Chassis is Lima - and it works!!

Been doing some more research and I think I could get away with basing it on a BR March E4.

Can certainly looks closer, though you'd have to round off the tank tops and add coal rails to the bunker... And get rid of the chimney and dome!!
