Just aquired a Bachmann Light Mountain 4-8-2. Very impressed with it's drive gear. Nice looking (darkened metal) and smooth running.
Plan to kit bash it to a B&O T-3t, using a Bachmann long Vanderbilt tender.
Didn't get much in the way on documentation with it and was wondering if anyone has had any expirience removing the boiler from one of these puppies.
