Very nice job! That is info that is useful to people like me; that may get
around to bashing something similar one day! Now I'm nauseated....

Lois, sounds like you are doing the same thing I did.  I have converted IHC
4-8-2s into both a K1 and a K2.  Provided you can find a Bachmann J shell
and the appropriate tenders, the K2 is actually the easier conversion.  If
you are really picky you do need to convert the crossheads to aligator
crossheads, but you can use either spare 4-6-2 IHC parts (obtainable from
IHC) or Bowser/CalScale parts (I have done both).  Use a Rivarossi Y6 tender
for the K2 and a Berkshire tender for the K1 (to represent the ex C&O/ex NKP

You can check out my conversions at

My first choice would be the streamlined K2 4-8-2. I would take a M or M2,
as I have recently received information that 4-8-0's ran in Williamson in
the 1950's (My era is about 1954-1956). I am on a budget, and my roster
reflects cheaper steam choices: IHC 4-6-2 and 4-8-2(in gradual conversion
into a K1) two Bachmann J's, a Rivarossi Y6b, a Model Power 2-8-0 and a BLI
A 2-6-6-4. I would be also interested in a Y6/Y6a and a Z1b.
