Katy rebuilt AS16 locomotives
Posted by IA and eastern on Sunday, July 28, 2019 8:26 AM

Katy had EMD rebuild AS16 locomotives with EMD long hoods and engines. Later C&NW got these engines. Is there any drawings of these locomotives. I would love to model these locomotives. Gary

I found this through a quick search for "AS16 locomotives C&NW" and found some pictures, along with this:

That's a pretty crude shell.  My plan is to do it like EMD did, by getting a Baldwin and splicing a Proto long hood onto it.

And to the OP, here is a good starting point for photos:

I agree, as after I found that one, I looked at other Puttman stuff, and I think the old LifeLike and Tyco looked better  Laugh

There is drawing in Model Railroader April 1982  of the C&NW repowered Baldwin road switcher. Gary

 Guess this is what happens when you cast off an original shell instead of making your own masters - Puttman is Big Dog. I must remember to talk with Bob's sons about why they got involved with this guy - there are always two sides to every story of course. But Rapido has pretty good evidence showing he just copied a Rapido shell (certain casting marks that are not details showing up in the Big Dog 'original').
