Here's one of ex-Mogollon Railway supt's Model T now operating on the Silver City NG. Shown here on Pinos Altos Creek trestle rounding Hairpin Curve. This car is powered by an old Grandt Line "Micro-Mo" drive and r/c. She's been around for about 10 years.
OK then, here's another rail bus. This one is On30, owned by David Cox. Built from a Russkie bus that had to be smuggled into the US from Aufgotchastan. Powered by an old Sagami (or Zucinni?) can motor with drive from a Bachmann On30 rail truck. Oh yes, this one is r/c with onboard battery...no worries, no wires to the track!
The thumbnail view is because I had to snarf it from his gallery to my post and, you know...s%^t happens!
That was a fun little project. The hood & main body is die cast metal, the underframe & roof are plastic. BTW, the lead truck frame is from 60 year old Mantua "Belle of the Eighties", the spoked wheels are PSC, and the rear drivers come from a Bachmann On30 Climax. How's that for "bashing"?
Wow...that looks like a tiny Brookville critter superstructure sitting on a log car with 2 push car "trucks" underneath. A most interesting and highly model-able little doo dad. OK, who'll be the first to build one? DOUBLE DOG DARE!!
