Thank you for the link Huw, this morning saw me in my local model shop ordering the four wheel Russian truck. I think it will make an excellent rail truck for the farm. I fancy a fuel tanker this time with tank mounted in the drop side body. This would be used to re-fuel the tractors working out in the fields.


I have a choice of chassis, an Athearn SW7 switcher or a Con-Cor SW1500, both run extremely well. Alternatively I could use Tenshodo for power and an un-powered truck for extra current collection. I will make a decision later when I see how much room I have.


When I was a lad in the early 1950’s I lived in a small village in Hertfordshire. Opposite was a small transport business who used horses as well as a couple of trucks, or lorries as we called them then. They were Fords and looked exactly like the kit I’ve ordered. That is the main reason I found the kit so attractive.


Once again Huw many thanks I would not have found this without your links.
