Lately I have been narrowing down the focus of my model railroading to basically the anthracite roads of eastern Pennsylvania. As a result I have been going through my collection and identifying out of place items. One of the locomotives I came across is an IHC 2-6-0 Camelback lettered for C&O that I purchased a few years back. At one point I thought about selling it. However, after successfully changing road numbers on an IHC 0-8-0 switcher I decided that I could take it a step further and change the road name. I had set of Walthers decals for Lehigh & New England steam locomotives that I used for the numbers on the 0-8-0 switcher. I did a little research and found that the LNE had camelbacks but most of them were 2-8-0s or 0-8-0s. They had no 2-6-0 camelbacks. Since I cannot find any reasonably priced 2-8-0 camelbacks, and for the moment kitbashing or scratch building are not possibility I would have to exercise some model’s license and “capture the spirit of modeling”. Here are some photos of the locomotive in the C&0 livery.
