Mike the old Kemtron’s run great if it’s the one with updated drivers. I use a NWSL 28-1 gearbox and replace the Kemtron Gearbox. I did the Blackstone just to see if I could do it.

Those Class 56 locos were very, very similar to the later Class 60 locos that became the C-16's when the D&RG became the D&RGW. Basically only an inch or two difference in both diameters ... hard to see in HO.
I have the same issue, as I model an area that received three surplus Class 56 locos from the D&RG/RGW/RGS. I have a couple of Kemtron kits for parts that I am thinking of adding to Westside C-16's, essentially rebuilding the superstructure and using the Kemtron tender.
JC Zuolaga recently took a Blackstone C-19 and married it to a Kemtron but that took a lot of frame work too. But it runs a lot better than an old Kemtron (not saying much, a brick sometimes runs better than an old Kemtron!)
