Yeah, Bruce, I thought you might be interested in that new Bachmann
4-4-0. <VBG!> Did the TM have anything similar? I'm very tempted to get
one and letter it for one of the small lines associated with the
C&IM...totally unprototypical, but there you go!
I think the Bachmann 4-4-0 will be similar at least in some specifications
and should certainly look appropriate. I'll defiantly get at least one.
Well I'm thinking about building a model of an Erie depot for the Kaufman
station. It's the right era but that's about it. A Wisconsin prototype
pickle facility and a pecan polisher that was on the A&NW are other bogus
elements. So much for prototype fidelity for me too. Much of the TM has to
be a best guess or a probable possibility so the little Bachmann's will be
deemed as prototypically accurate and that will be that.
Take care, Bruce
