There was a thing in a magazine interview (some may recognise which one) which asked the interviewees: If you have unlimited skill, time and resources, which loco would you model? The vast majority of responders came up with big, complicated locomotives. If I were to answer I would say something really simple and mundane like a Ruston, Simplex, Lister, etc, but I would do it so well that it would be amazingly good. Frank, you have demonstrated what I mean - bravo!

Well said Si, to take the proposal one step further, if they actually started the project they probably would never complete it. :twisted:
Franck, on the other hand has produced a superb Loco in the blink of an eye. :D 8)

I will exhibit the 10th & 11th January 2015 at St Albans model railway exhibition (London). Si I need to have more typical british locomotive to show. I have to paint my lister.

I have also a new project. On Rumanian narrow gauge there are plenty rail trucks or rail cars like that




It's plenty of atmosphere. The germans done it also with combi VW. So I decided that I need also to have mine. I doodle between combi, austin mini, ...

But there is always prototype that exists so I did some reaserch and I found this





In fact Canadian national did 5 cars like that for inspection car. So if Canadians did that, I could do it for my narrow gauge.

This is my unfinished version with HLW motor, esu decoder. I need to paint it, weather it a little, add sticker on it, a surfbord because it will be the rail car of the local surf club (Woolacombe bay is famous for surfing)

Nice one Franck,
I remember some discussion a while back about feasibility of using a Mini on 15in gauge, 2ft is still a bit tight. I suppose it could just be a mini body fitted on a conventional railway chassis. It would not be too difficult to lift the body up as they are not too heavy. The Canadian ones are on standard gauge. The Land Rover narrow gauge conversion in the UK shows how it can be done on narrow gauge, and I love those Romanian conversions. I sometimes wonder if they got the idea from narrow gauge modelling. :lol:
One of my projects is a narrow gauge railway with rail mounted Japanese road vehicles. I started a while back, but I hope to use them on a new mini layout.
Those 1/12th scale models are not that cheap, a bit too risky for me.

I used to have a mini that colour , same model, the original 850cc engine, which was better than the later 1000cc version. Even fully loaded with 4 people in it it could easily take on other non sporty cars, especially on hills. The modern re-incarnation of the Mini is not a real Mini, whereas the Citroen C1 I have now has a lot of the qualities, with many improvements of the old Mini.

45mm track in 7 / 8 th scales out to about 2 feet. Wide enough for a Mini. Frank´s model look great. A real eye pleaser.

In Romania they very often use 760 mm track, so a VW microbus does not look too far out of gauge.

Saw a GDR made Trabant on 600mm track near Goettingen / Germany a few months ago.

It even carries a hydraulic turntable underneath, so it can turn whereever it wants.

Have Fun

The rail car and truck car are owned by CFF Viseu de Sus.

A excellent video made by my friend

the official site

My firends have done the rumanian at 0n30 scale

If you want to see the entire collection of rail truck

The rumanian police also has his rail truck

The traban is excellent too !

must say, it does look good, it would be an interesting exercise to connect front wheel drive to rail wheels.
