  A couple of more photos from Sonsanate El Salvador.
  The shop engine started life as a NG 4-4-0, two belt driven Lathes stored in front of engine. The boilers were used in the steam plant for the shops in Sonsanate.

Hi Ken :wave: Eh!


A couple of great photos !!

The converted loco - shop engine, is a real neat prototype.


A U.P. Big Boy version could be interesting. ;)


:moose:

Si

A UP Big Boy might be an overkill, have a On30 2-6-0 with a blown gear on my list to convert, way to many other on going projects at present.

Hi all,
I found this one in my "photo archive" - a V-tip skip having an identity crisis...about how far the wheels should be apart :)



and from end-on


Anyone confused as much as this skip appears to be??

Don't know about the wheels but that short turntable in the background looks interesting.  Looks like there might be some kind of locking device to keep the rails aligned.

The V-tip skip looks to be of simple and basic construction.  I see brakes there but not sure how they are activated.

When see real interesting critters in this thread makes me want to build more for my own line.
