B&O #50

This diesel was a unique EMC 1800 BB boxcab the B&O used on the Royal Blue for a time. Just looking at the pics on google it looks like it would be easy to build up the shell if an appropriate donor could be located? I work in HO.

Thanks for the ideas guys, what little I found on the internet said they used AAR B trucks so I figured finding an old diesel with those trucks and the right-length wheelbase would be the trick. I assumed there would be more info online... Anyway looks like a trip to the museum is in my future.
