A FOWLER LOCOMOTIVE

A Conversion from an 'On30' BACHMANN 0-4-0 Porter Locomotive

 

The BACHMANN Porter unassembled ready for the conversion

Sorry, there are no plans for this conversion. I built it on the model bench and made the various sub assemblies to fit, rather than be correct. I was more interested in getting the model to look right, rather than be totally correct to the prototype (if there is one!). The black components on the unpainted locomotive have been salvaged from the original Porter. The finished locomotive, below right, still requires it's lettering.
