Hello all,

My apologies for the delay in getting an new software and an album with higher photo res upload capacity.
These links should be bigger and better, despite the photos being taken from my phone...






Sorry for the poor photography! Enjoy!

Its a Spectrum J class hiding under there if you can believe it.  Word is he hand filed the rods to give them the "not so J class" appearance.  Looks good and I bet its runs and pulls great!

Another close up from from the original photos. And yes, this loco is built on a Bachmann Spectrum J-class Northern with a pewter boiler and resin tender. The rods were reduced to provide a more accurate appearance.

Are there any NP modellers out there who wants these babies on their layouts?
It would be great to hear from you!

Best regards,
Michael

I'd rather have an S Class conversion for the Bachmann 4-6-0 or a Q conversion for the Model Power 4-6-2.

Hello Michael,

at the N-scale convention in Medford last year Jason Smith told the NP fans present that Gregg might be willing to do a small run if there were 10 orders or more.
During the convention we already came up with 10 orders (including three for me   :D ): I am not sure if there has been any discussion recently (difficult to say from Germany), but I believe that Jason is our contact to Gregg on this project....

Cheers
Dirk

It is a nice looking engine, but having one complete northern and one of Jason's shells
waiting to go on a brass northern chassis,   I would have to pass.   I was still rather hoping
the W-5 kit would actually come out.
