There is a new locomotive coming to the Bogong & Geehi...
This is a model of G42 almost completely scratchbuilt by my friend Bernard Snoodyk. He brought it over for a test run last week and after a couple of tweaks it ran beautifully. He is now painting & weathering it to look as it did in the late 1940's for me. I can't wait!
Beautiful - what else needs to be said.ReplyDelete
I'm loving the look of the engine. One question though. In the second picture, why is the front track gapped so much? Temperature change?ReplyDelete
Hi Ron, yes the gap is from temperature change. We had an extremely hot summer and I had lots of trouble with rails buckling. I had to do some trimming and went a bit overboard making the gaps wider than I needed. Surprisingly I haven't had any issues with derailments on the wide gaps.Delete
Just love it! Might be about time for a scale change! ;-)ReplyDelete
Geoff, changing scales was one of the best things I ever did. For me O scale works so much better and I have found it very enjoyable.Delete
