(F) Gn15 Gas Mechanical with Kadees

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

(F) Gn15 Gas Mechanical with Kadees

Anyone using Steve's cab conversion but wanting to retain Kadees can use the existing Bachmann couplings, BUT I think the resulting appearance isn't "chunky" enough. Others will disagree.

Wishing to modify my pin and link Gas Mechanical I found that I had a Smokey Bottom mini-Porter conversion that consists of a couple wood beams with facility to fit Kadees.

Fitment on the same lines as Steve's "On30 End Beam Conversion" results in the following appearance:


Reason for the plasticard twixt beam and Loco is to ensure Kadee fits flush into the coupler pocket.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.
