These little fellows are found in Best's Mexican Narrow Gauge, I thought some would like to see them here. They were built by GE and are 30" gauge. I haven't seen any HOn30 or On30 electric lines (I don't think I have seen any) and these would be relatively easy to build, or so it seems.
F C M de Chia used these guys. They are shown hauling ore in what look like Grandt Line Koppell bottom dump cars.
And this little guy, just neat as all git out. Minerales N De Mexico used this GE boxcab and reportedly had a couple of more.
Now, get out the brass & plastic, a diesel mechanism (2 or 4 axles), and some pantographs. This stuff actually makes me want to model an electric ore hauler!
I agree with Woodie, Junior---that is a great little movie clip.
When I was a widdle kid, my first train was a Lionel 4 wheel box cab (supposedly a NYC R motor but that required you to almost close your eyes to believe it). The freight cars were four wheeled also, and the box car had apple green sides and an orange roof.
Boy did those boxcars in the first video remind me of it.
Perhaps Lionel wasn't that far off prototype after all---
