Re: DL&W

Thanks Jace,

I mentioned that to my buddy, but he just wanted a stand-in for one of the DL&W 0-8-0's: said that it was close! My reply was "O-K-A-Y!" Surprising since this person is a stickler for doing it right!

Now if I could only find an engine that could be re-worked to be a Huntingdon & Broad Top Mountain 2-8-0 #37 which was a standard off-the- shelf Baldwin.

Depressions. Now the ERIE had USRA-type 0-8-0's...
