Re: "How to" F7B unit questions
PENZEE is offering B unit shells. Though they work well with Micro-Trains F7,
by modifying them a little, they would look good behind a M�rklin F7. This
would also save you the cost of the M�rklin unit.
PENZEE can be reached at 1333 Crums Mill Rd., Harrisburg, PA 17112. (717)
In the soon to be released December issue of Ztrack Magazine, we have a photo
of a S.P. E-8 that Billy Roden created by combining two M�rklin F7s. We also
have a photo of an E8 Fred Ladd built combining PENZEE shells. Very nice work
As for the question of the Baltimore and Ohio sets, yes the cars are a little
too modern for the steam loco. But, I think they would look good behind it! A
Baltimore and Ohio fan in town here say that you really need the old
fashioned heavy weight passenger cars for the steam loco.
I hope this helps!
- Hello George the way I went for my B-unit was to repaint a Marklin B-unit.
If you go to the Z-track site in the library there's a picture on the cover
I think Its May/June,click on the picture and you can get some kind of idea
what the one I did looks like. Hope it helps. Best of luck with it.
Have a Great Day
