Hi all,

On the topic of the authenticity of the model, why not consider that outside the U.S. Baldwin exported lots of prototypical metre gaute 2-6-6-2's to Brazil. For instance there were four outside frame units built in 1909 and 1910, 4 more built in 1910 and 1912, 6 inside frame units built in 1911, 2 built in 1913, 2 more built in 1913 and 1919 with piston valve gear, 2 built n 1924, 5 built in 1935, 1937, and 1940, and 14 built in 1946 and 1950. The last of these units was retired in 1980. That makes 39 completely prototypical 2-6-6-2 locomotives that the Bachmann kit could be adapted to.

See "Locomotivas articuladas" by Eduardo J.J. Coelho.
