She's getting there! A critter with character fer sure.

Screw the rivets, I'm building for atmosphere
Maybe it shows, but I never drew out any kind of plan for the critter. I worked off of one photograph, some guesstimations, and what I thought it should look like. As long as it works I'm happy.
I took the weights out to make room for the engineer, and possibly R/C in the future. I certainly have the room inside since I built a new body. I may add some lead just for a little extra traction. I only expect it to pull a few cars anyways.

I recognize that loco! I believe it is a Swedish critter and I also think that Tom Yorke brought out a kit for the thing! All I know is that I have seen a kit somewhere...cool as hell! Neat thing to build, carry on.

Didn't know he put out a kit for this. A little expensive at $125. I might have spent $20 total for everything including the Plymouth engine. Most of the materials I already had on hand.
Okay, so you'll need two car kits, and something for a chain drive. On the right-hand side underneath the 'pilot' it looks like there are a couple of bags...maybe for added ballast?
