If you like the bleached out look on the crane in Puno, :us:
if you ever find yourself in Leeds, visit the Leeds Industrial Museum.

They have on display a Hudswell-Clarke Diesel SN D557,
the first mainline 2&1/2 foot engine built.

It sat in the desert of Chile for 60 years, before being returned to Leeds,
some of the Apple Green paint still visible.

Yes  L:  it is on my O2IT list to get built one day.

Busy on a couple of diorama's for next year's show,
photo's will be taken as they progress!

Hi Ken  :wave:
I did have a bit of a nose around, at some    diesels !  :cool:



Strangely, I couldn't find a photo of D557.  ???  :f:

But, I am wondering if it was basically one of this type of loco built by them.  L:





I think some of these ^^ might have been made in 2 & 1/2 ft gauge.  :mex:


I did discover this very ol' B&W builders-photo of  M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co.  Diesel No.1 as well ...




Wolfys colour-blind Great Grandfather, with the very poor memory, couldn't swear it was Apple Green though.  :old dude:


He was desperately trying to remember back to sometime in the mid '70s ...  ???

... but the best he could do, was guess at a dark green 'Humbrol Enamel' military colour !  ;)

( Certainly NOT a standard 'Tri-ang' livery ! )



:moose:

The 2-6-2 shown is the official works photo of the "Junin" D557,
before it was painted in North Eastern Railway Apple Green.

Now on display at the museum in Leeds.

It was used for a couple of year's on the Junin Railway,
before the line shutdown.

Returned to England in the early 1990's.

Hi Ken  :wave:
Thanks for pointing the ^^    out to me.  :thumb:

I think they may have built some in 2' gauge as well.  L:


A bit big for my lil' outfit ?  ???

Maybe ... But maybe not ... A  2-6-2T  steamer conversion is just as large.  :)

A few measurements for "JUNIN"

Length over buffers   30 FT
Width  7 FT 9 IN
Height   10 FT 9&1/2 IN
Coupled Wheel Base  7 FT
Overall Wheel Base  20 FT
Driver Dia   2 FT 9 IN
Pilot Dia  2 FT

You would also need a gentleman dressed in Tweed, wearing a Yorkshire flat cap,
to represent Arthur Kinsey the H-C lead hand sent to set up the engine and training in Chile for H-C,
earning 100 Pounds for travel and the training period (14 & 1/2 weeks total).

Got to remember that was in 1930  L:

:us: of what it would be in today's money.

Would look good hauling your collection of various cranes around the yard. :2t:

Just need to drink a few more :java: :java: to get you started on a build.

Hi Ken  :wave:


She is a nice compact  :slow:  ol' chunk of iron !  [whack] 

I do really like the cute(ish) diesel 2-6-2 format !  :thumb:





But ...  :dt:  NO MORE PROJECTS !  :f:  :time: (for now anyway)  ;)



My TWO Moguls  :java: :java:  1 hopefully heading towards converting into a 2-6-2T ...

... are enough for today !  :boogie:


Plus of course ALL THE CAR BUILDS  :shocked:  & CRANES ! ...  :old dude:

... buildings etc. etc.  :y:


What I really need to be building  :dt:  is MORE DAMN BENCH SPACE !  :brill:  :us:



There's a sophisticated 'Lionel Derrick' on the cards as well don't forget ! ...  ;)

... I am a bit devoid of ideas  ???  for that 1 at the moment.  L:



:moose:



Si.

Understand the  :bang:  lack of work bench concept,

any time I get close to a working space it gets piled with stuff :us:

and then I need more room.


Just finished up a couple of projects for my daughter  L:

it is time to get back to a couple of dioramas,

I need to get done for the Spring show here.


Keep coming across more  :shocked:  projects I feel I need to build,

rather then finish up what I've started  :bang:  already,

including a crane or two.

Hi Ken  :wave:



YEAH ! ... Tell me about it !!  :Crazy:



I couldn't help myself, starting the new 'drop-side car' recently.  :P





Simply just had to have a play with making something of that placky Ford truck back.  :cool:





Also the 2nd shortest bogie-car ... Other than my scratched 'Crane R127' chassis.  :dt:





Possibly my narrowest bogie-car so far also ... Other than my BASHed 'Trix' Weltrol.  L:




Not much bench space required to build either !!  :doh:



:java::moose::java:



Si.
