Manifique!

Or should that be 'Bewdy' 'cos Marty told me real Aussies don't say 'Fair Dinkum' any more....

How much does each unit weigh?

Cheers, guyz.  The kids say Fair Dink here Doug.  Good is awesome everywhere now, I think.

The motor units just weighed in at 850 grams or I think that is 1lb 14 oz?  16 ounces in a pound, right?  Dunno how many rods, poles or perches that is.  :oops:

850 grams anyway.

Depends on how many rods it takes to catch your perch and how many poles it takes to land him. :mutley

Rods, poles and perches are equal units of linear measurement. Nothing to do with weight. :pathead

That's about right Max, phew! [454gms = roughly 1 lb]

Thanks, be sure to do a manual handling course before you get it all in one lump...

Doug


PS Great pm!:lol:

The detail on those bogies looks stunning, Max. Can't wait to see and hear the final creation. Hope you have a nice long run for it somewhere?

Thanks, lads.  :cool:  Geoff, Sol apparently knows of a G layout being built in the hills nearby, so it might get to run other than on the rollers.

You're setting yourself a high standard there, Max. Very nice indeed. I'm already looking forward to the noisy video!

Awww c'mon Mike. You might know, living where you do, that those NR's are actually relatively quiet beasts ;-)

Though to see and hear this one in action would be a treat in due course.

Thanks, Mike.  They come past our house several times a day enroute to and from Perth to/from the east.  Two, three or sometimes four in a lash up with 60 plus wagons, grinding up the hill from Adelaide to Mount Lofty.  Visitors ask us how we put up with the noise, but we honestly don't notice it.

I'm hoping to bring it to Melbourne next year for the NMRA national conference, if it's done in time Rick.

Now that would be something! A trip on the Overland with a BYO loco!

NR-class locos haul the Overland train from Max's region to mine.

 Rick I wouldn't have a clue about what runs on the line 300 yards from my home :mutley  but look out if I ever get the chance to model QR. It'll be a different story then.
