Si,

This would be perfect for me (post 122).  I've got a HO Plymouth that needs to be converted to 35n2 and the body should be easy to build.  Everything is simple, straight (well, kinda), and boxy.  Any mistakes I make will simply add to the 'charm' of the engine.

Pacific Electric diesels were equipped with trolley poles to activate the signal system.

Hi Michael :wave:

ARH ! ... The 'Redneck Rolls Royce' huh ?
Well, even my Tri-ang Railways(TM) steeple-cab has more RIVETS than that ! ;)

Could be a good 'prototype' to choose Michael.
There's certainly not much there that the 'pickers & counters' could sink their teeth into !
If they tried, I think those suckers would end up with a mouth full of splinters. :bg:

The charm of the engine is indeed there in SPADES !
I think real wood, as opposed to styrene would be called for.
Somehow actual wood, does a really good job of looking like ... well ... WOOD.


:moose:

Perhaps some health & safety worrying SPLINTERING effects !

( make sure they are EXACTLY to scale though ! )


I'd say, give the damn pickers & counters a run for their MONEY !


GO FOR IT ! !

Making slow but steady progress.





Looks a little like a steeple cab, but with a little funky home-built feel.

A little more progress.  Gotta finish up the roof and add a few details like horn, bell, and lights.  She's been named 'Trooper' because she keeps rolling along like a real trooper.
