Someone on the retrospective NZR group the other day came up with some pictures of Df's in the bay of plenty in the 1970's, and it got me thinking about building one. the question that I did ask was, would it be possible to build one from 2 Dg noses plus new body sides and roof, given that the Dg was supposed to be 1/2 a Df when they were built. The nose is the hardest part to do (a hex on designers who thought that curved loco's were a good idea) so this might be a simple solution.
Or are the 2 loco's completely different and I'm stuffed?
