Below are some concept drawings I did for making a Hartland Mack Locomotive into a 1;13.7 sized critter:



Top row: Center cab gas powered, off-center/end-cab diesel, half-boxcab diesel.

Bottom Row: vertical boiler steam, horizontal boiler steam, electric critter.

Personally, I like the critter the best, something about a pantograph on such a small locomotive makes it look different.

Just some ideas for a very small loco for my other concept of a true 1:13.7 micro layout under 4 square feet.

If you are taking votes, mine is for electric.

Kitbash,

I have to say, the electric is my favorite as well. Something about it's simplicity...

Electric.


Herb

PS  You might consider a bow collector instead of the pan. Much easier to build, and more prototypical for the size. Still allows unlimited backing up.

The mack is an excellent basis for a loco. It's cheap and the chassis is more than correct.

Here two macks that I modified in the past

I hesitate to post after such excellent model making from Franckcombe, but here's my take on the little red electric - Lighthouse Island Railway No 1 : 1/10th scale, Playmobil mech, and a bow collector as they are way easier to make than a pantograph.

It's a good contribution. You have never to hesitate to post things because we always find guys that are better than you and me.

We learn from each others.
