In December last year I received an order for a DCC Red Hen railcar.  Built in the 1950s, these pretty little units rattled around Adelaide suburbs but have been subsequently replaced by a more streamlined (and airconditioned) version.

A couple survive as part of the Steam Ranger historical society, and operate between Goolwa and Victor Harbor.  (Yes the spelling is correct and official).





I purchased two locally made kits and Iansa did a beautiful job of assembling, painting and mounting the Tenshodo SPUDS and directional lighting.  I have fitted interior lighting and Loksound 3.5 decoders.




The interiors are trimmed in blue.  The customer is still deciding which coupler to choose.  I reckon mine will get Kadee #43.  Looks like I've bumped one of the horns during my part of the process.




The back end of 412, showing the tail lights.  The Red Hens have been off the road for months, waiting for repairs to get them back into service.  It's a 200km round trip from home to Goolwa and back to record all the sounds, but once the editing and uploading process is completed, they will be excellent models.

Superb workmanship from the pair of you. And "red hen" is so much better than "pox box" which is the nickname given to their replacements :cry:

Neither did I & I rode on the  predecessor to the Red Hen & the various versions of railcars that came after the Hen , for 24 years.

Reference is made here among many other transport-related places, and with a photo of the current generation as well.

Is the low frontage a device to clear Redbacks off the track?

Nice looking work.

These are completely new to me and I have to say they have been made up into very smart models that I think anyone would be proud of.

Thanks, Bob.  My customer is a local.  They should look (and sound) a treat running on the South Australian layout at Mount Barker Club, where he is a member.

Any chance of a video sometime in the future Max, with the sound on of course?

Yes, Bob.  I have had several abortive attempts to get all the recordings - including a 200 km round trip yesterday, only to find that they had substituted a Brill car without notice.  I have sent them an email with these photos and a link to the video of the tram to show them what I'm trying to achieve.  Considering the circumstances, it was very polite - unusual for me, as Sol will bear witness.

As soon as I get it done, I'll post the link here.  Cheers  Max

Hi Max,

Don't know if it is possible or not but Auran Trainz has a Redhen in its folio of rollingstock and the sound is fairly good... wonder if it is possible to lift the sound from the program. I know roughly how to isolate the sound file but whether you can use it or not is another thing...

Let me know,

Regards

Trevor
