And, a pic of my LMB Mc Keen...
A crude model, initially powered by,
a balky vertical shaft three pole motor on the rear truck...
The front truck has a rubber belt drive,
to the exposed fake gasoline motor flywheel.
I replaced the power truck,
with an Bachmann truck from a 44-Ton G.E.
Built a radiator from cooling coils left over from a Swiss "Gotthardt" boxcab,
and put it behind the pilot in the correct position.
Also created a trailer by doing a resin copy and joined the two rear halves back to back.
A future project is to fabricate an McKeen that was converted to gas electric drive,
with a Baldwin front truck, roof mounted radiators and prominent exhaust stacks.
