Tobar Station, my 2015 "1915" Challenge Entry

Caption competitions, competitions run by The Management (ahem) or just a challenge you'd like to set your fellow 'boxers, this is where to put them!

If anyone finds a challengney type thread elsewhere can you PM me the number and I'll carefully copy it over into this forum.

If anyone's wondering why I've done this ... wait and see! :-)

Any way you can lower the gearing for that chassis. Some of those 80:1 Grandtline ones would crawl, and they are not too expensive. The ones with those ho diesels have the whole kit at $30-40. NOt dirt cheap but can go as low as 160:1 gearing and including the motor. Ebay has them fairly cheap.

I probably won't mess with that one. Not easy to change and I glued some things inside that should not have been glued. No real way to take it apart to change much. I'll just use that little loco for a backup. It was made of nothing for nothing, all salvaged stuff.
