You are right and I have took the same decision when I have built this locomotive (there is a few month ago). So I have made another bonnet (made of platic and thin metal) with open sides http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/11/97/54/34/campag18.jpg http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/11/97/54/34/campag19.jpg

Many thanks to all ! My Campagne model is a TE. This is the original drawing I've done The drawings, together with some of the pictures from the various links, make it rather more obvious why all the effort is worthwhile. You've almost got me tempted. But I just know I couldn't do it justice. Looki...

There is even a 40cm gauge version, though reduced in size on a tourist line in France at the Tramway de Boutdeville. There is quite a bit in the old posts here, but I know from past experience they are not easy to find. Some shots of it appear HERE though. Hello Steve, I know well the Boutdeville ...

Thank you Bilco of for your answer !

The link to the "war model" Campagne is interesting.

My model is a TE one : like the green one.

Another idea used by a friend of mine : replace the Fleischmann tiny motor by a Faulhaber 2020B using the Fleischmann worm gear.

I use 3M remount spray glue. It's very good and easy to use.

After the leaves are glued, I spray a coat of mat varnish on the trees.

You can see the result here : http://www.jackymolinaro.com/Vis-en-Art ... /VEAGB.htm

Hello,

the Magic-Train motor is too small to be reliable.

I replace it with a cheap but powerful Mashima (near £6) with a Jouef or Fobby worm gear.

I don't use DCC system : no need. The KFS controller is better and KISS system for me.

Thank you.

It was a simple way to hide the electric motor and to permit to let open the bonnet.

Re: Gimme Air

Another tiny step of progress - the discs for the ends glued together, ready to be sanded to shape. http://i275.photobucket.com/albums/jj319/bilcor/eimcodiscs-crop.jpg The bolts are not just to clamp the pieces together - I intend to stick them into the 'letric drill and use it lathe-like to do the...

Bill I used the motor from an HO Bachmann HI-rail track maintenance van to power my 1/35 scale “Tilly” pick up truck. (I am pretty sure it is the same as yours.) It has little out rider wheels which also pick up current. They are not really noticeable at normal viewing distances. They do however ma...

Yes, it is the Hornby Toby chassis. It has the same chassis block as the Bill & Ben loco's. Excuse the poor pic, it's from a very old thread. http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b120/stephenbennett/HornbyBB.jpg Note the covered axle openings which are used in it's Toby guise and if you look at Ja...

Bo Campagne locomotive 1/24

Hello all, this is a little subject about my Campagne French locomotive in 1/24 (16.5 mm track). I began using a "Tobby" Bachmann Hornby chassis : yes it's a 3 axle loco to represent an only 2 axle loco :roll: http://i47.servimg.com/u/f47/11/97/54/34/campag10.jpg :wink:
