    Default Pennsylvania Railroad class B1

    Hi eveyone,
    I'm planning a 1937 Penn layout. I'm having trouble finding an N Scale BB1 Altoon Works switcher. Has anyone see a Class BB1 N Scale? If its a Pennsylvania one, even better. But I'm at the point where I'm wondering if it even exists in N Scale.
    Thank you all.

    I do not think the B1 was done in N.

    I'd try and see if you could get that shell in something other than white versatile plastic. That stuff has limited uses in N and fine detail isn't one of them

    Thank you guys! Unfortunately I'll have to hold off on Kitbashing this little engine. I dont have confidence I can finish a way that will make me happy just yet. Going to have to home my skills a little more.
