Oh, I missed the second motor. I should have looked at the diagram and not just the picture. The picture has great detail you can zoom way in.

Some really interesting things to build here on the front.

Another neat plate full of details!

I guess rear echelon hospital / beans and bullets needed plenty of power.

First Machine Shop car has a stand grinder, a power hacksaw and a drill press with a pretty big table. Second has what might be a press, a lathe and a smaller drill press. I'd guess some of the work was repairing field artillery. Damage might be from heavy use, or from enemy action. The rest probably included fixing light railway equipment.

I have entered the "So Many Choices” Challenge and put a thread up in Mike Chambers' Craftsman's Corner.

I plan on putting the details of a few builds there but I will post pictures in this thread when I believe they will be of interest.

I have a bunch of projects planned and started. I am feeling deadline pressure so I need to fully focus on the WW1 layout for 9 months. Watch for a lot of activity.

Happy New Year!

I found an additional car to add to the Work train project. Heath is currently trying to scale the saw needed.
