Default lionel atlantic 2-8-0 conversion

A while back I remember reading a forum where someone took a lionel atlantic and a aristo mikado and came up with a great looking 2-8-0.¬* I have finally secured all the parts and would like to get some advice from someone who has done this before i start.

Try under the Builder Logs section of this site. Second tab under features. Then look for Joel Miller's log and go from there.

That article is building an atlantic out of a pacific?

I do not remember the thread you mention, however, it makes sense, the PRR E6 and H8/9/10 shared boilers if memory serves....

That is correct Garrett. I have one of his pictures of the finished conversion but can not figure out how to post it.
