The conversions would be excellent for The Arrow.
Please give it some thought.

      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 tender).

      You can check out my conversions at
       and 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.
