Very nice all-in-one critter, would be perfect on a very small (but complex) layout :)

Oh, this gave me ideas...

Quite large for a HO engine, but in Gn15, we often have the space... I'm very interested by the supercapacitors schematics they have designed to keep the constant speed setting after the power break.

I use remains of wood veneer: hard to find, but very easy to work with.

Years ago I've made small funiture with 3mm plywood. Once it's varnished it looks great.

Another critter

Build on a poor Lima motor-boogie, near all the engine is in paper and cardboard. There's metal wire for the hinges, brake, bits of wood for the axlebox... I've put it aside some time ago, but now I'm thinking of new linking parts, maybe in casted plaster. And I must make another brake handle, since...
