N scale question

Although I don't have the N scale versions, several HO scale modelers
have done the conversion, shortening the boiler by a bit and adding the
shroud over the fireman-side air pumps. Rivet counters would also
suggest rearranging the pieces in the skyline casing for a more exact
top view.

Subject: N scale question

I have received an inquiry from a non-member who does not have internet
access.  He is an N scale modeler and I am unable to answer his
question.  I am hoping someone on this list can assist me.
Basically, he owns two Bachmann J locomotives; he wants to know if the
J shell can be mounted on the Bachmann 4-8-2 chassis as a basis for a
K2 conversion.
Any thoughs or suggestions?  Let me know and I will send him a reply.
