    I converted my 2-8-0 to M-T using just a simple M-T 1128 - no cutting, drilling or gluing needed. My dealer said that the M-T book said to use an M-T 1129, but that would be too long. Be very careful -- there are small wires connecting the trucks to the motor. During my M-T conversion, I broke one of these wires.

    I don't have the magazine article you mentioned, but you start disassembly by gently prying off the plasic "coal" on the tender. Then there are four screws. This should give you enough slack to do your M-T conversion.

      CS Engineer, you are talking about the tender conversion. I was planning to use an 1128 there. I am talking about disassembling the locomotive to make a new cab and add a Belpaire firebox, and adding a coupler to the front of the locomotive.
