Dual gauge critter?

Postby celebdoc » Fri Jan 10, 2014 12:13 pm

Found this on the Southern e-mail group site - page 46 of the link (couldn't figure out how to save the picture from the PDF).

It's a Pullman car being shunted by what looks like a narrow gauge petrol/diesel dropped into a standard gauge bogie at the Danish Railway Museum.

I'm sure there's a genius out there who could make a Gn15 critter that could also manage this feat!

Actually looks to me like a standard gauge build. You do see similar locos about. The narrow gauge adaptor chassis arrangement was used in the Guinness factory though.

Great info on Pullmans though :-)

With Moderator's hat on I should point out that link as posted is kosher, however posting the photo from a current publication would infringe copyright.
So little time, so many ideas!!!!! GerryB.

Which would explain the locked PDF I guess. I had thought about copyright, but duly noted.

It's actually page 43! But a great little loco none-the-less.

For someone who spends most of his working day on a computer, I never cease to amaze myself just how rubbish I am at it!

Loco in question would be the one pushing 3929 off turntable in to Museum,
on Monday? That is an interesting little thing.

Save the picture by using the workaround of print screen then paste in to MS paint and saved screen shot.

Thank you for the page of extra photos.

I don't read whatever language this is but the photos tell a scratchbuild story.
