For the E33 and E40 there's also the Kato GG1 pantograph.

I've been sent a photo of a the E33 body now fitted to the C628 chassis and awaiting painting (posted with permission).



As expected the chassis block needed some trimming to fit in the body, and the bogie frames needed a small amount of material cut off their outer corners to ensure free rotation, but otherwise everything apparently went together very nicely.

Meanwhile I've been working on the CAD for loco number four, the GF6C.



I have also been commissioned to do the New Haven EF4 and EF3 electric locos, and some New Haven passenger cars too. So, the GF6C will not be the last of this batch of US prototypes.

That E33 is looking pretty nice! Can't wait to see her in paint.

Thanks Eric.

Here are some renders of the finished GF6C CAD.









One detail of these locomotives puzzles me - the thing that looks like a ship's anchor, suspended in front of one of the underframe boxes. It's clearly visible in this photo, below solebar level just to the left of the "B" in BCRail -

If anyone can tell me what it is I'd be very grateful.

A little inspiration straight from Strasburg, PA!

Paul - That "anchor" looks like a rerailing frog. If an axel derails, that device would be placed on the track ahead of the derailed axel with the rail coming through the slot that is visible in that photo. When the train moves forward, the frog guides the wheel up and back onto the track.

I scoured all over the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, but I couldn't find one to take pictures of.

Eric, thanks for E44 photo and the explanation of the rerailing frog. That certainly makes a lot more sense than a loco having an anchor.

I've just been sent a photo showing the prints of the E33 and E44, posted with permission.



In front are two E33s, and behind them a pair of E44s, all mounted on the Atlas C628 chassis. Right at the top can be seen the sprue with the handrails and other details awaiting fixing.

I'd say you are a master with that software Paul! That looks real good. Way beyond me.

Any more thoughts on when us Slobbering Pennsy Fans might be able to get our hands on the E44?

Hi Eric,

The E33 will be available from the beginning of April, and the first lot of E44s from mid-April, with more variations over the following weeks.

One month to come up with a C628 chassis. Check.

Great to see you've found a C628 Eric.

The first version of the E33, with the correct details for the New Haven period, is now available from Shapeways at http://www.shapeways.com/model/495162/ne3301-n-scale-e33-loco-new-haven.html. I'll add the earlier and later versions over the next few days.

Fantastic models and as far as I am concerned almost unbelievable for N gauge. My word how that scale and gauge has come on in the last few years.

Thanks Robert. I've now made available the earlier Virginian and Norfolk and Western versions of the E33.

Virginian Railway - as-built condition
