I could not just have the layout redone.Something new needed to run on it.
The blue one is on a Atlas drive .No prototype was used,just bits and pieces from things have seen. And since I like electrics she ended up with a Bachman Tram Trolley pole.
Unfortunately she will not pull more then one regular car( plastic) through the curved incline. But since I ave built a few of the card stock ones 4 empties are no problem.
If you are wondering about the eye bolts on the buffer and the front.Check with your local optometrist.They are old hinge parts for glasses that are out of production.With a bit of trimming and filing they work great.
You all might remember this one:
Nice but too long.
Here is the butchered version:
The interior is finished,controls and driver.Now she needs some more details on the outside.The drive I used is a very old Hornby.Runs great,is heavy and a true puller.The car behind it is a test project for a modern working side unloader.But more about this later when I know how to get the bugs out.
Have a great day,always love reading all your post and admire everyone's skill and imagination,even though I may not comment.Thanks anyway for your inspiration and skill,learning all the time.
