0-6-0 Boiler and Cabs

It should be of note that the boilers for the HP Products 0-6-0, 2-8-0, and 4-4-2 are interchangeable, and that the cabs for HP steam engines are pretty much interchangeable with each other.

Hi sailor, do you know how close the main parts (boiler, wheels, cylinder, cabin ...) of these old H.P. 0-6-0, 0-8-0 steamers are to the USRA protos?

I will have to find a spec sheet on the USRA switchers, as well as dig out my TT scale modeler's ruler to find that out. I think I have a 0-6-0 in my TTraveler case.

I've purchased a 0-6-0 kit few days ago. :)
If you need, I can measure it, but what dimensions?

I'm especially interested in the smokebox door, boiler domes and cylinder proportions, wheel diameters and cab width/hight. But I don't have the original measurements (and a model as well) to compare with.

What does it mean - "smokebox door" ? Please show on the picture :)

P.S. Sorry for a long pause - my home ISP does not "see" ttnut.com, so I can visit this site only from office

Looks nice. How slow can it run? Can it do scale speed switching? ....dave

That's a smokebox: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smokebox

But thank you, my steamer's already on it's way. :grin:
