I hope Tom doesn't mind, but spoke to him today and there are various things in design at the moment including G gauge bogies and drive units in 16.5mm.

Keep watching :lol:

Tom never minds publicity !

The prototype for the motor bogie is now available http://www.shapeways.com/model/881479/1 ... block.html

It's designed to be a better running and more robust SPUD replacment.

Everything seems to fit and go together OK but I've not had a chance to complete mine as I discovered I need a broatch to enlarge the holes in the worms slightly so they fit on the lay shaft.

Outside jobs have prevented from locating and ordering as set of cutting broaches but I do intend to get round to it in the next couple of weeks, then I can finish this off.

Well, there are a few Gn15 models offered at Shapeways. But you don´t see them assembled or painted very often in here.

I would not mind seeing the Gn15 Decauville built an detailed by someone. Saw, smelled and touched a real one in Frankfurt yesterday.

Including buffers, it is only 400 cm long. It celebrated its 101th birthday and is still running fine. After spending the most of its live in Greece.

Ah, but it isn't THE Volos enigne. The frankfurt one is an early type 3 I think. works No. 509 is the black one in Volos at the brickworks and it is mostly a type 1 (its been a bit kitbashed), so a bit smaller (about 2700mm in length).

The Decauville in Frankfurt is No. 648 / 1912.

They mention in their catologue, it was delivered with a sister loco
named ARGO to the Thessalian Railway.

It is possibly this one http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Volos_Decauville_locomotive.jpg
