Another one of Andy Knott’s locos this one is brand new and not fitted for DCC unlike his other locos. (It was at a price he couldn’t resist, about £20.) It is the latest version of the Bachmann 44 tonner with a central motor instead of the two separate powered trucks that they used to have. The plain yellow livery is perfect for an industrial or fictitious short line.
The 44 tonner is seen switching cars at Colonel’s crossing. The structure on the left is scratch built in plasticard and thin card from a plan (probably Chris Ellis) in Scale Model Trains magazine many years ago. The building next to the UP box car is a freelance structure that I made to fit the site. The buildings in the back ground are actually pen and wash drawings on cartridge paper glued to the back scene.
