B&O and Chessie System Consist

Greetings Blog Followers,

With the recent success of the New York Central FT A-B-B-A draw bar conversion The New York Central Train Layout Mechanical Shop was given the directive to convert an Athearn BB Baltimore and Ohio F7A & F7B from Kadee couplers to draw bars.  The A unit is powered and the B unit is not.

The B&O F7A & B now draw bar equipped.


Spacing is much closer and much more realistic

A Bachmann F7A and Athearn BB GP35 make a good looking 4 unit consist. The Bachmann unit has the old pancake motor which has been disconnected and had a few gears removed so it is free rolling. The GP35 is powered.
