My conversion of standard LGB passenger cars, sliced to stretch out to make a full length coach and combine.
Working with my friend Barry, I simply cut three LGB cars and sliced to make two stretched cars..
The first picture is two original LGB cars. The next three show after cutting and slicing 3 to make 2 cars.
The 4 middle pictures show the final cars after painting and lettering for D&RGW. I have more to build!
Bottom first is my train with Sunset 2-8-0. Last 3 are Barry’s true 22.5 scale, scratch built versions to compare.
Note: the column flow… top pictures show converted, middle show after paint, bottom is a scale version of same.
