Re: Light weight bridges

After WWII a lot of BAILEY BRIDGE Elements found their way in the NG field.
They where cheap as surplus and all over the place. On top of that,
light weight and easy to assemble without the need for heavy lifting gear.

Re: Huge tools (sorry)

Well, I worked on some Dredges , the pumps had a 45' Housing diameter and the nut holding the impeller was about 18 to 20 inches. They had a matching socket and a ride on rattle gun. The nut holding on the Cutter Head where of the same size....... could be a fun project. PS smaller Dredges had a 10 ...

Hi Simon, TOTALLY wroth it! They are real narrow gaugers/mine tram users, re constructors of equipment.
Their historic pictures, travel reports of existing mining/quarry rr and trams all worth it.
Give it a try

Hi Steve, love what you have been doing so far. But have one question, why did you put the shear brace of the platform under the stairs?

Re: Where to get link and pin couplers?

Here is my solution. The gauge is a 32MM . the coupler is from OZARK. To get them to work properly in the PUSH mode i allowed them to swing a bit. This also helps when pulling through tight radius curves. https://s20.postimg.org/l3uwco6jt/IMG_0363.jpg Never forget, thousands of roads lead to ROME......

Hi Chris, thanks for the info. You straight chassis would be a great base for these cars, based on card kit. http://my.gn15.info/new_mine_2(1).jpg The chassis is made from single parts of plastruct channels, yours with the hook coupler would be the exact prototype. Have a great day Chris
