Hi Dave

Just wanted to let you know that I've really enjoyed this thread.

If you don't mind,
I thought I would add some of my critters to your excellent little locomotives:

1. "Winky" built on a Bachmann On30 Birney chassis

2. Gas critter on a Bachmann On30 gas-mechanical chassis

3. Speeder built on an old Bachmann HO 44T single truck chassis





I agree that Gn15 is a lot of fun!

I'd love to see more of your steamers.

Brian

Thanks for posting the photos.

Your little locos are great!

I'm glad others are adding to this thread.


Some photos of my steamers, are on my 'S. Charles'  thread.

Regards, Dave L.

Here is another of my steamers. 

It has no motor or gears,
and runs as a double header with another engine. 
It is a Rivarossi chassis.

It is my best running engine. 

Regards, Dave L.

Buildings for Gn15 can vary in size. 

This was to be the main factory building on an industrial themed layout.
But was eventually rebuilt for a friend's layout.

What is easy to forget,
is the size of buildings, in the larger scales. 

A major factory or industry, can quickly overwhelm the layout. 

I find it to be a bit of a juggling act,
to design a structure that would warrant several carloads a day,
without becoming a monster that dwarfs everything else.

I love it, Dave!

I may start looking for a donor chassis for a new project!
