0-4-0 tinderbox
« on: June 19, 2016, 01:46:57 pm »
I purchased a Lionel 0-4-0 Pennsylvania loco for my father for father's day. I wanted to customize it to look like the little local one that used to run in this area.  Just realized the one from here was an 0-4-0t. Anybody know where or if we can get a tinderbox add on to attach, or will we need to look for one with it already? Thanks.

Hello & Welcome to the Forum!
Bashing a locomotive can be fun or drive you crazy.
Easiest fix: find a junk tender, introduce it to Mr. Razor Saw, affix the piece you cut off to the cab of your loco. Voila!
Craftsman fix: get out your napkin & pen, design the fuel box, remembering the iron horse needs h2o also.
Get out the sheets of styrene, lay out the pattern from your napkin, cut the pieces. Using the glue of your choice, put the pieces together, sand, attach to cab, paint, celebrate....
There's a photo of one of my large scale 0-4-0t bashes in the gallery.  I'm a fan of 0-4-0 & 0-4-0t locomotives, have 10-12  large scale by various manufacturers & bashes.
I hope this is of some help to you.
Happy Rails!
Dave
