Great stuff going on here!

Larry, Thanks for the link about the Canadian Armoured Train, interesting stuff.

I'm tempted to join in but I've got some WWI stuff going on in 4mm scale, so I think I'll just sit back and watch.

Beautiful assembly on the gon! Take your time with the Gaz gun ... it'll be worth it!

Just finished going through this thread. Got a big chuckle out of it. You guys are having a lot of fun. This reminds me of a picture in MR a long time ago of somebody building a flat car, I believe, with a tank turret mounted on it. On the side it said "Bus Eliminator".

I'm wondering if you guys are driving the NSA nuts with your talk of guns, smuggling and foreign countries. I'm sure they're watching.

That's a funny thought.
You just never know.

Maybe true Rick, you know how the saying goes;
I heard a loud knock on the door, then the voice said,
"Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms." Naturally I assumed it was a delivery....


That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

Thanks for the link to No. 1 Amoured Train. I had a good chuckle over this, "The Department of National Defence wanted two diesel-electric locomotives (one for a backup). Unfortunately, the two locomotives selected did not have any engines."

At looking at the photos, I'm not sure but I think that's a 13 pounder on the front and a pair of 40mm Bofors on the back. You can see the 'safety' bars to stop the 40's from targeting the train. There is a search light for Larry too.

I ordered a 40mm Bofors and a couple of M1 57mm at guns for good measure, thanks to Larry for securing material though the Lend/Lease Act, and Track48 too.


Cheers, Heath.

Ron,

Maybe you can take it on a road trip and start it up.

The R&D department at my Estrella Copper Co. has wanted to solve a problem that has persisted in the region...when the payroll comes in to Sonora Grande, it must be distributed to employees at locations along the E&SG to the remote mines above Estrella. Given the presence of banditos and other unsavory characters, there have been pilfered payrolls.

Here was their initial solution:



The mining engineers stressed the difficulty of launching a successful attack on the car; it is almost impossible to board, which would require special platforms at pay stations along the line where people could line up to collect their pay at the small door labeled 'HERE - AQUI'. A heavy gun turret and gun slots would provide adequate defensive measures in the event of a robbery.

The crews balked at the idea when shown these prototype plans. First, it would be incredibly hot in that armored box under the desert sun! Secondly, it would be impossible to escape if the bandits doused it with flaming Frijolene, or some other such extreme attack. They said they would rather take their chances in an open car, but they liked the big gun mount.

Frustrated, the engineers threw up their hands and called the crews some things I will not repeat here. The crews are taking the matter into their own hands and drawing up something less 'World War' in appearance, with a big gun and other stuff to defend the payroll. They have not released the design, but can be seen after their shifts in the engine house around plans kept secret. Rumor says it has been named 'El Chupacabra'.
