I have been looking at what I hope will be my next addition to my model railroad collection and my second On30 locomotive. The Bachmann Spectrum On30 2-4-4. It comes in both inside and outside frame. I would prefer the outside frame but since I forgot to tell my parents that in the Christmas list I have started to look at the inside frame version. When I looked at the photo I couldn't help but remember a photo of B&SR #6 The Bachmann model could be made to look just like the #6 with what looks like few modifications. Tell me what you think.

That is a wonderful looking model. Do you think it could possibly be W, W, & F #7?

I thought of this one too. I thought I would rather model ww&f #7 witch would require the other type of frame.

You mean this style?




This would need much heavier modifications to look like the 7.




It could be done. The drawing is my own.
