Would anyone be interested in a "how-to" on building a Class A T-boiler Climax for On30? I am currently converting an Athearn SW1500 of which I had seveal miss-haps before I got a simple T-boiler figured out for this. I still am working on the water tank but that is the easy part. I warn you..this is a very backwoods looking loco! As to cost, I would say it is under $60.00 including the drive train so it should fit into anyones budget. for castings you will need a dome, headlight, and stack, anything else on the boiler as far as gauges, pipes, throttle, Johnson Bar is up to you.
Anyhow, if there is enough interest I will put something together.

Ken, I already have so many things I'm working on that I wouldn't be able to join you. But, it sounds like a terrific project and if you do build one I hope you start a construction thread and post pictures. I would definitely watch your progress. Who knows, maybe someday I'll have time to actually build one too.

Since I have already built a Climax Vertical Boiler loco in On30 , yes I'd be interested in seeing what you can do .

Thanks , Terry

Ok gents, I will put something together. For the most part the only thing left is the cab. I finished everything else last night on the backhead. I just wanted to add some additional pipes, valves, etc, yada, yada yada.
Terry, this wont hold a candle to your fantastic models. They are inspirational to say the least!!! However, my goal is to try to get a few gents to attempt a rather easy project and create a backwoods looking loco.
Guys this has been a very easy project so far.

I'll even go so far as to promise to show mine after I see (how you do) yours!
I really loved Teejays, but even for me that was ALOT of soldering!
Ken mine will have to have DCC & sound though!

I don't think that will be a problem. There should be plenty of room inside the boiler for the decoder and looking at the thread for DCC and sound in a Porter, the speaker should fit up in the roof.
