I have this information which I think I got some time ago from Barry Big Trains site. He explains how to install a bear-trap on a Bachmann 10-wheeler. I would think the process for a LGB Mogul would be very similar.

Good Luck, Peter.

I have the "Bear Trap" on MY C&S Mogul, but it is a live steamer, so the "Bear Trap actually contributes to the healthy "chuff" this baby makes under steam.

I did however put it together from an Aster kit, and the "Bear Trap" drawings for attachment are in good order right in the assembly manual..

I could scan these for you and send them. You'd have to scratch build from there, but if you are interested, let me know at vettbass@intergate.com
