Hi there,

What an interesting journey so far. Thanks for sharing the creation of what could be Australia's best looking loco in a grand scale. Cant wait to see and hear more of this. Keep up the smashing work.

Mick

A bit more progress.




The remaining three have been brought up to where number 1 was and now work has proceeded on number 1.  I discovered whilst looking at my reference photos, that there is no shock absorber on the middle axle.  :oops:  Had to take them off.   Random shapes create the illusion of the brake mechanisms and 1/16' piano wire bent to shape makes the hydraulic lines.  The flexible hoses terminate in a block which will be connected to hoses from the body.

Front and rear sand pipes will connect up later.  When I was looking for a production motor block, the nearest one I could find was the one made by US Trains.  It's not exactly right as you can see by comparing my model with the photographs, but I think it conveys the illusion.

I have to keep reminding myself that I'm only building a box to house the Loksound XL.  :thud

Thanks, Michael.  I thought G would be easier coz it's bigger, but the detail is a bit more demanding.  :thud

It really is worth it - on those bogie sides the placing of just those bits of wire make a world of difference compared to if they weren't there (not that the rest of it isn't really good)

It is looking good not least account the amount of detail being included. Hope Max remembers not to fire up a diesel engine inside all that plastic!

Hi Max, after this project is completed are you going to try something in 'Z' guage (just for a different type of challenge????)

Look forward to seeing the progress.

Z?  Dunno Craig.  I'll have to think hard about that.  :shock:

Thanks, Perry.  High praise coming from you.
