Very cool locomotives, be sure to use the [IMG] tags when you post photos.

They're packed with character!

Exceptional workmanship. Thank you for taking the time to post the construction photos - a great mini tutorial and mini clinic.

Hello Junior, welcome to the on30 forum!

I am very happy to see those critters.

They are very nice. Like Larry, I have a lot of questions.. how did you power them? Where did you get the parts? I especially like the air compressors.

Hi Junior,

Let me also welcome you to the On30 forum. Love that critter, it has a lot of character, might have to electrify part of my layout and build one of those. Keep the pictures coming.

Junior,
Brill job on the Electro's. Loved the semi built shots, there's something very attractive about raw styrene and brass. How about a little more information, like where did you scrounge up the Catenary Connectors and the insulators, motors worm-drives etc. etc.

Also remember to use the [img] image [ /img] command line in your posts so they show up without having to click, (I had to use a space in the last img line or it just shows a broken image.) The images would have had much more impact if you had done them that way. Way COOL though.

I'm already going to do this.. for some time I have been thinking about doing something along the lines of the Colorado Yule Marble Electric Transit (as a branch shortline)- and with the ease that Junior has built those tiny critters, it is inspiring me, and making me want to attempt this.

Thought I'd reformat Junior's pictures so everyone can view with ease (including me)

Thanks all.

I was looking for some pictures of the electro crittrs. And the comment was delayed. Sorry.

This time I show the pictures of tiny electro critter No. 3.















Re power truck: I use Tenshodo SPUDS, WB-26 or WB-31, not Beatles (or Rolling stones).
In Japan SPUD is cheeper than Aussie-made Beetle power truck.
But, I employed a pilot model power truck for No. 3, due to its wheelbase.
