While I was searching for some old cars, built some time ago, I came across a batch of stuff I built 10 years ago.
To be exact, some locos in 1:22.5 scale running on 32 MM track.
The locos where built/ hammered together....very poorly. I had used them as background models on our club laypout.
That said, the BUG got me. Since I can not finish my layout for space reasons, I decided that at least I could start building something again.
to start, I took everything apart. They where so bad that I did not take any before pictures. I ended up with 4 drives from
ATLAS / LILLIPUT. 2 of them are 2 wheel drives , 2 are 3 wheelers.
here is the batch:
The first thing I did is clean everything up and see what I wanted to use for the project.
well, here are my possibilities:
A 2 Axle center cab with long hoods on both sides:
A 2 Axle sort of center cab with one long and one very short hood:
A short 2 axle with conventional hood and cab:
And a 3 Axle conventional with a long hood and relatively large cab. This one I will definitely build:
In general I am leaning very much to the long hood center cab, don't ask me why, it just appeals to me.
Everything you see is just loosely placed on the drives.
An other thought I had, in case I ever wanted to run them, was to install an RC unit. Based on my extremely bad experience with track building and thus bad electrical supply, this seem a good idea. plus there is a large amount of space available.
love to hear what you guys think.
PLEASE excuse the small pictures. Have no idea what happened......
