Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Today saw the basic structure finished (no door / windows yet) and temporary fitment. A slight modification was needed to the wood strip above the control panel (15mm or so had to go) but that was it. Held in place with spring clamps it looks like this: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4703/4017688793...

Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

For no really good reason it has been a while since I've posted in here, and there has been some progress made. The battery locomotive now looks like this: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4598/27351017729_1d0d711af9_c.jpg 2017-12-17 18.55.03_preview by lesmond2009 , on Flickr https://farm5.staticflic...

Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Nowt done for a while due to work etc, but finally some progress today. I cut a piece of styrene to the right size, and used it to make a mount to hold the Spud to the 3D printed chassis: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4538/27037676589_9083e90629_z.jpg 2017-12-03 17.01.37 by lesmond2009 , on Flickr ...

Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Wiring finally finis :D . Trains have run, and it mostly all works. Next to make the small locomotive to bring the skips from the offstage mine and take the loaded flat cars to the (also offstage) warehouse. So far it consists of these parts: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4570/38662570171_4d4e44c22...
