Fitchburg Chloe: The Best of Both Worlds

Howdy Everyone, Been awfully busy making progress on the little forney (will update soon), and developing my other projects. Some of you may have come across my last little inquiry under the "live steam" section requesting information about a Uintah locomotive. Also hinting at the development of a l...

Re: Uintah #20 0-6-2t

Fender,
It truly was an impressive railway. Stocky yet maneuverable and powerful. Love the story of every locomotive there. Gotta love narrow gauge!

Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line

Dang! Look at that. Great work, bud. Enough of my union break. Gotta’ get the ol’ gloves back on and get ready to start setting pylons again. Fantastic push.

Re: Uintah #20 0-6-2t

Thank you for the responses! Super cool pictures! Yes the De Goyler library does have the drawings. Karel was nice enough to send me the information I needed. Fender, yes there were only two built. #20 and #21 at the Uintah Railway. You can see ever so subtle differences between the two. And no, the...

Uintah #20 0-6-2t

Hello Friends, I am in search of drawings for the Uintah #20 0-6-2t. It will aid in the development of a very cool project I am working on to hopefully bring something new to the community. The ideal scenario would be to have an erection drawing of the entire locomotive. However, the main dimensions...

Re: Converting a Coles 0-4-0 to a NG 0-4-4t

Hello Friends, Another quickie today. I am not posting any pictures until this next phase of the build is complete; however, I have been making some chips little by little over these past few weeks. The rear frame section is almost done. The biggest challenge was designing it in such a way that the ...

Re: Converting a Coles 0-4-0 to a NG 0-4-4t

Hello Friends, Finally checking back in with you for a quick update on the little sugar engine. Had to wait on some materials to make a boiler mock-up. I’m referencing the original erection drawing (courtesy of Mr. Watson) from Baldwin LW for proportions. Funny enough, I’m actually taking a quick br...

Re: Converting a Coles 0-4-0 to a NG 0-4-4t

Jack & ADK, thank you. I’m super excited about this one. For years I have always seen people finding their niche in the hobby when it comes to wheel configuration, class, firing fuel, etc. Finally finding mine (Forney type locomotives), has lit a new fire under my rear end. That and I love the conce...

Re: Converting a Allen models Chloe 0-4-2 to a 2-4-0

As the previous members have stated, best bet would be to draw up a Fitchburg frame in a CAD software and subtract the 3rd axle set. There may be other changes needed to be made thereafter due to boiler design. However, nothing that can’t be easily remedied. The Chloe and Fitchburg are so similar in...

Converting a Coles 0-4-0 to a NG 0-4-4t

Hello all, It’s been a WHILE since I’ve last been active on here. Took a couple year hiatus from the hobby. Had some “growing up” to do and get my life started in the aerospace world and all that kind of jazz. In recent times, my interest for the hobby has resurfaced in a whole new light which has b...
