I have used a system of not fastening the body down.

Located by a couple pegs, if nothing else, the body can be carefully lifted off for battery charging.

The loco does not have to leave the track.

But then we R.C. people are different.

I thought of this method,

but had a frightening vision of my creation sailing off the mechanism on a curve...

Herb

Do you have a photo of your peg location method, by any chance?

My creations will be battery powered also, so convenient removal of the body is desired.

Thanks

Rick

OK Rick

I get that tag line.

Refrain:
" Big locomotive right on time
  Big locomotive comin' down the line
  Big locomotive number ninety-nine
  Left the engineer with a worried mind"

You got it, Dennis!

"Monkey and the Engineer" is a Jesse "Lone Cat" Davis song.
He was a one-man band in San Francisco and all the Bay area musicians loved him.

Based on your profile pic and your location, you're probably familiar. ;)

I love train songs.
I do a lot of them.
Probably half of my song list is songs either about trains or referring to trains in some way.

I don't do Terrapin, though. ;)

Rick

That little thing has character.

Will be interested in seeing what eventually becomes of lamp idea.

I got a couple of the Hawthorne Village On30 trolleys on eBay for less than $30.

I am looking forward to creating a couple of funky little beasts of my own.

The mechanism really has lots of potential.

Hi Guys  :wave:



The great photos from this fantastic Thread, were HIJACKED BY PHOTOBUCKET last year. :f: :f: :f: :f: :f:



They have now, almost certainly TEMPORARILY, appeared back in their rightful place ...

... due to PhotoBuckets recent, probably in vain, attempt to save their company.



For anyone wanting to chew the fat on the worlds worst money-grabbing photo-host, there is a Thread HERE :-

PHOTOBUCKET.COM HOLD MILLIONS OF USERS & BILLIONS OF PHOTOS TO RANSOM !



Editing this Thread, to replace it's images with RELIABLE on Site photos, stored here at Freerails ...

... will hopefully happen, after the trillion other things that need doing !  :P



But for NOW at least ... the Freerails loco IS BACK !







The worlds most funky lokie ?  L:

Rolling rust & dry rot ?  :f:

Loggers entry for the 'Indy 500' ?  :slow:



You can decide for yourself !  ;)



:old dude:



Si.
