RICH,

Thanks for the specifics on what you did to your HOn30 Porter!

I am eager to see what you do next for your Hon30 Roster out of the options you mentioned, as well as with the N Scale Shay.

Happy modeling!
Peter

This little layout has really put the 'little grey cells' into overdrive. I've got a couple of HO wood 'craftsman' type kits in my stock which don't really fit in with my main WM interest so I've been thinking of a small diorama/layout to use them on. This fits the bill. However, I need a small HON3 loco, where does this little Porter originate? Is there a readily available in the UK alternative anyone can recommend?

The porter is a conversion kit by Railway Recollections, that fits on a Life Like N scale docksider chassis. All told it was about $70 bucks.

Ken Kidder imported some Porter 0-4-0, 0-4-0T, and 2-6-0 brass engines in the 1960s in both HOn3 and HO. They were available in both kit and RTR, although I've never seen an unbuilt kit. They had pretty rudimentary detail, basically a low end brass loco for its time. They show up on eBay periodically, which is where I got my HOn3 saddle tanker. The 0-4-0s generally go for less than $80 US and the Moguls for around $125.

Thanks for the help with the loco guys. I remember the Ken Kidder stuf from way back but haven't seen any for ages. I will probably have a look at the Chivers loco kits that fit on N-Gauge chassis to see if there is one that fits the bill.
