My Friend Bill Martinsen build a Plymouth 2 1/2 tons at 1/13.7 scale. He has always the flair to find good model with a strong character. His model inspires me a lot. Bill Martinsen kindly send me datas and photos of the models.



I choose to build it with my friend Jean-Pierre Duval two Plymouths (one for each) because we have  complementary competencies and we find fun to build it in common. We decided to build them in 3D and 2d with CNC machine in order to gain time and eventually to share it with other modelers. Jean-Pierre Duval is a talentuous modeler in 3D / 2D, he has already built a lot of locos at various scales.



This is the model from advertising






This is the true model






This is the version made by Jean-Pierre Duval










For those who are interesting to do the plymouth, they can order the various parts on theses links

Oh I see...
...that's OK then !

Has the harbour-master repaired the buffer-stop at the end of the wharf yet ?

I don't see a periscope on the Plymouth.

I have not preview an amphibious version of the plymouth.

Jean-Pierre draws a general view of the loco and in a near future will post a complete and detail drawing for the locos

The link for the drawing is http://jpduval.free.fr/Plymouth-2T5/Plymouth-2T5.PDF

You can also visit his web site specialized in live stream garden loco http://jpduval.free.fr/ (the web site is in french but you may find many interesting drawings)

Haven't posted for a while but the Marion TLC is my favorite locomotive so I think a brief history is in order. Purchased by the City in 1951 for use in their solid waste treatment plant, spent about 40 years in service running around on Decauville type panel track and was retired in the early 1990's. Rather than scrap it, the Marion Union Station Complex stuffed and mounted it and found a kid who did a cosmetic restoration for his Eagle Scout award. In 1998 I photographed and measured it and did a CAD drawing of it which was published here several years ago. (Met the guy who spearheaded the preservation effort and about 4 weeks later all the original City of Marion paperwork regarding the purchase and the Plymouth Erection drawings and part lists appeared in my mailbox!) More recently I have done an O Scale 18" gauge 3d printed version. Nice Job!!!! - Russ
(Passed along the paperwork to Rich Craig at the Alvada Two Footer as they have a 3 ton TGT)

You will also need the frame adapter and a Bachmann N scale Plymouth MDT.

Both of these are the original one piece body & frame, I decided to do a separate frame so different bodys could be added. On the right a Minitrains mechanism and a Bachmann on the left. Since these are modified to fit what's available I guess they are Plymouth TRH's:glad:- Russ
