A spoof photoshopped photo posted on Facebook has coincided with me having a Triang Evening Star with a disintegrated tender frame going for spares. So ladles and Jellyspoons, we have the BR Standard 9MT Tank Engine
Black outline is the stock 9F, red the 4MT Tank. Green is the extended tanks and bunker (well it is a 9F) which also moves the rear pony to a more suitable place. The blue line is where the bottom of the tank front needs to be raised to clear the weighshaft and line up with the bottom of the footplate.
Looks do-able with a bit of cutting and shutting etc. Also got to get motor drive down to the 9F drivers as the donor is tender driven. Might use the Bachmann 4MT motor etc, might not. Time will tell.
Just need a cheap 4MT tank engine now, oh and some time LOL
