I was looking to see where I can get HOn3 models of the D&RG Class 56/ Class 60 locomotives before rebuilding. I can't find Kemtron's kit versions anywhere. Does anyone know where I can find some models of these locomotives, or what I can use to convert some RTR models? Any answers will be appreciated.

There are several possibilities on e-bay in brass. For a C-16, brass is the way I'd go. The mechanisms are simple and easy to fix and maintain. Keep them lubed and they'll pretty much run forever. I've worked on and painted several for others. Not a ton of pulling power, but narrow gaugers tend to go for short trains anyway.
