Adrian, if it's still able to add a switch to the main line, I would prefer number two and connect the right side of the first narrow track with the mainline too. It allows you to set the loco on both ends and it's only one switch more.

Jon,

take also a look at Avalon Lines ALC 4-9: Length 54 mm, wheelbase 20 mm. Another idea is to take a N-gauge 0-6-0 chassis and remove the wheels and the overhang from the middle axle.

Jes,

Maybe not the exact Ruston-logo, but Slaters has moulded letterings in different heights:

For glueing they recommend "MEK-PAK" liquid cement.

Hope this helps

Nina - size doesn't matter

Hi, like Adrian I had a crane-project on the "to do-list", as the challenge started. Originally intended for 0n18, I compared it to a 70mm figur and was surprised: In G9 it works well as a "big boys toy" on a 7" garden railway, sometimes maybe used for regular services (haul...

Andy, I can second John. If you build a model with your son, let him say, what he will see on it. It's sometimes amazing, which details kids will note on a prototype - particularly if you explain them the function in a suitable way. If in doubt, make it a little bit larger, stabler, let the "fo...

Maybe this is a way to go?

The traverser rolls on a gradient up and down, and the tracks are lying horizontally, but in different heights.

note: tracks are not drawn in scale :wink:

Interesting idea with the gradients. But if the tracks are in gradients and the traverser is horizontally, you have horizontal breaks/bends (or whatever is the correct term :D ) in the track. OK, with four-wheeled locos this may work, but usually there is a radius between gradient and horizontal tra...
