Just wondering but has anyone converted a Lionel scale Harriman 2-8-0 to PS3? I've found that the conventional version can be had cheap. This is the model I'm talking about: http://www.lionel.com/products...dation-2686-6-28037/ I know a command version was produced but by the time I buy a cruise commander M, supper chuffer, and chuff generator, plus a new fan driven smoke unit the cost of a PS3 kit and a MTH PS3 smoke unit ends up being cheaper. I want 4 chuffs per revolution and fan driven smoke, just like my MTH steam locomotives. Plus all my steam locomotives are DCS and diesels are TMCC, so I'd be sticking with a pattern .
Here is the parts diagram for the locomotive: https://www.lionelsupport.com/...386-280376-28039.pdf
Looks like it uses a standard RS-385 motor with flywheel. I would just need a MTH smoke unit recommendation and it seems like it would be a fairly easy project.
