Thanks for the compliment Mike. It'll be a long haul if I do. I think that shunter loco would look good in 1:35.


Actually it won't be that big. An HO scale boat that carries ore, if built to prototype length would be about 6' long and 6" wide. Sylvan Models puts out a short one that is only 3' long. So if you want to do a decent model probably 10' to 12' in length would do. Then perhaps two sections on either side for the empty and loaded hoppers. This could be run in a circle to a storage yard. Still need to do a bit of research in this area. I've got over 32' feet of length in the basement.

Time to go do a bit more research.
