    Thank you all for the kind words !

    Nothing much to report, busy razor-sawing and glueing the bus bodies, that between the chores from the wee boat.

    Found this on YouTube: narrow gauge diesel inspiration: visions of an Indian YDM4-sh loco built up from an SD40-2 come to mind ......

    And it gets even better: they're ALCO powered :up: :up: :up:


    cheers, Leo

    Thanks Tom, Dallas,

    A plow !!!

    The railbus comes with an optional (snow)plow in the box, this really makes a big difference, you loose the 'floating' look if you catch my drift. I'll glue a bit of styrene sheet behind the radiator opening and a small piece of strip around the edge, sort of much smaller version of a 'coffin' type of feedwater heater. Think I'll install the bell there and a light on the roof.


    cheers, Leo

    Well, I had to pause to figure if "LOGGII" or "LOGGINNE" meant anything ...

    Nice job on stretching and bashing those units! Looks good with the double doors on the lead unit and the single doors on the trailing car ...

    Perhaps a pilot or even whisker-type cow catcher on the lead unit?

    Nice work!

    Thanks Bill !

    Got some green ones here as well, haven;t reallly thought about the color.

    The trolley bashes will be rich burgundy & gold, but this lot ???


    What I do like about this bash is the way the coaches can be mixed, looking at the pics above I can imagine a second long coach as trailer behind the power coach, you would have to fabricate the underframe but that wouldn't be that difficult. A 'long' powercoach a.k.a. P-type is still a good inch shorter than a B'mann coach and such a combo could run on any short line ...


    cheers, Leo

    Got the razor saw out again today, cut two busses to make a P-type a.k.a. power coach. It fits nicely over the GP40 frame and looks good combined with the C-type coach IMHO








    All parts are held together with tape and need bits(!) of tweeking, but it shows the general look of the coaches.

    Did I mention that the left-over bits of bus body appear to be made to perfectly fit over a Davenport ?


    cheers, Leo
