Thanks David,

I must be blind!! I did not see it before. Some nice kits. I went to their website & their photo gallery is something else. I wonder if their kits would fit on S2 or a NW2. When I get a chance I will e-mail them & ask.

Paul

Railway Design Associates has a conversion kit available for an Athearn or P2K switcher. I e-mailed Rod & he said it would work on a Kato as well. The link is: http://www.railwaydesign.com/fusionml/products.cfm?catid=112

Here is a photo. Check out their other items while you are there.



The description on their website says, "In keeping with the spirit of On30 and the free form ideas generated within this rapidly growing narrow gauge phenomena, I needed a large diesel type locomotive among my steam powered equipment. Some call them "critters", indicative of a freelance "backshop" design or, later, a manufactured or relatively mass produced locomotive. This model is neither. It is not a "critter". Was not mass produced, but it is certainly a "backshop" LARGE diesel requestd by railroad management. Whitcomb was a real manufacturer, with a great reputation. Certain details shown in the pics are not included, Spark arrestor stack, style of headlight. Details included but not shown are, bell assembly, air horn and whistle castings.A different style of stack. Also included are instructions for assembly and finishing. Model in pic was built by Allen K. Littlefield. This model kit consisting of various resin castings is designed for assmbling onto a Athearn SW1500 or a Lifelike SW9/1200 chassis. CHASSIS DESCRIBED NOT INCLUDED and are sold seperately. Overall length of Locomotive is 6 1/2" (26')X 2" (8') Unit stands approx. (depending on wheel size and chassis assem) 2 1/2" to top of cab roof."
