Well then, here is the un-numbered truck/loco at work. I will add more "details" as time goes on, but she is now in service on the Mogollon Railway switching cars and hauling the insulated boxcar and water car to the mines. This truck is also useful to carry rail, spikes, & ties for the never ending track maintenance.







The new proportional r/c board made this a real joy to operate and watching the counterbalances and rods whirl around is cool. I will show more when I can...

AH you murdered 2 good locomotives!

That is pretty ingenious. We need a video of all those mechanical things whirring around as it runs. :cb:

Yep, a tube "cowcatcher" will be built and more junk added. As for "good locos", both mechanisms were junkers in a box with no superstructures. No motors either, the one motor came from the junk box also. Videos? I don't have a video camera, how about sending me yours...
