Re: Finally a new loco start

Doctors poking and prodding me last week slowed down progress. The joy of being old. Now I need to get the gear shaft to run concentrically again and we will have test run video, maybe this weekend.

Re: Longstone 2

Re: Finally a new loco start

I mainly used Faulhaber geared Motors and looked them up on Ebay. I did get and Escap one also and they were all between $10 and $20. They have some very expensive ones which I disregarded. Pretty much any ratio you want for slow speeds.

HO or ON30 track is pretty versatile. You do have a good collection of locos. I'm impressed with the European ones. They always look cool.

Looks fine to me. Just paint it rusty and maybe paint a cushion for the drivers butt. Maybe some Blu-tac. Done.
