Looks like the Watson-Fordson has got sanding apparatus; not surprising with drivers that diameter.
Nice photos Jose.

Hi,

Question about the 1928 Watson Fordson:

What size do you or anyone, think the width of the chain used on the wheels, is?

I have some Servo-link chain and sockets and the chain is 1/8" wide. I bought the stuff about 6 years ago to build an Ollie Smith (NZ) Railtruck that used chain and wheels sort of like shown in this picture. I could never figure out the width of the chain so I never built the model.

Thanks

Looks to me like a little narrower than the railhead, if this helps. Jose.

Probably Industrial size 120 from the looks of it, but whatever it is, Servo-link is way too large for anything smaller than 1:12 scale.

Looking at the proportions of the driver's body, the railhead & general mechanicals I would guess 2.25" to 2.75" wide but parallax error in photos can be very misleading, especially partly angled photos such as this one.
