Hi Ken :wave:


Looks AWESOME Ken !

Do I detect a couple of wires at the front ? ...

... for that 'real' rotary effect ! ( as seen on T.V. ;) )


I was VERY BAD a couple of weeks back ! :shocked:

Scoring one of the nice ol' Tri-ang HO snow ploughs, for that 'rubbergauging' I'm supposed NOT to be doing any more !

Found quite a funny Canadian themed ad. for it, from back in the day as well.

I do like a good snow plough in any case.


:moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:


Si.


Now, what's going on with all those R127s ? ;)

Wondered why the price on eBay has ROCKETED recently. :f:

Someones been HOARDING THEM !!


:bg:


Keep us Posted Ken...

...ploughs, cranes, tanks, EVERYTHING ! ;)

  A front end photo of the plow, used various  set's of plans of  Snow Plows to build from,
also a BLW Sn3 model of RGS #2. Had to reduce plans to fit the plow from Mikes Trains.
  Forgot the R 127s were in the back ground, only have 3 of them, picked up over the years
from my LHS. Not me buying them off E Bay

The plow has a width of 9 ft , typical rolling stock for the FCA(C)&B was based on 1 meter gauge. Freight cars were 8Ft 6In by 33 Ft 6In. Passenger cars were 9 Ft in width by 49Ft 8In in length.
The FCA(C)&B was not widened from 2Ft 6 In to 1 Meter until 1928, but plans were in place from about 1913, hence the standardization of 1 Meter gauge rolling stock.
