Management here at the PRND&L Railroad have been engaged in some significant discussions regarding our steam motive power. Since the PRND&L is a small railroad, we run mostly Lionel “Scout” and Marx “Delux” (also K-Line) sized rolling stock. That also means small-sized motive power that won’t look too out of place.

Regarding our steam roster, the best performers we have are Lionel’s 0-6-0 “Dockside” switchers. They seem to run at a more steady speed on the level and through the ups and downs of our mainline.

And so, management would like to hear from other railroads: has anyone tried to kitbash the power unit from a Lionel Docksider into another steam locomotive shell or body? Any photos? Any advice on what not to try?

 

The Passaic, Raritan, Neshaminy, Delaware and Lehigh Railroad was formed in 1996 out of bits of used track found at train shows. It's main commodities include plastic pipes, dowels that look like logs, toy farm and construction equipment, and plastic formed to look like piles of coal. For some unknown reason, it also hauls a large number of cars which are completely empty.
