Does anyone know of a company that produces the 2 engine Gen Set Model Locomotive?
I can find plenty of 3 engine models.  The line I'm working on just used the twin engine model.

Thanks, Nenny

Hi Benny
Is this in model form or 1:1 scale. NRE does the 1:1 scale and some outline drawings are available from their website at {url]http://www.nationalrailway.com/locomotive/n-viromotive-2gs-14b-ulel-switcher[/url] Go to the borttom of the screen, the Specifications tab will give you basic dimensions, and the Rendering tab gives you the outline drawing and equipment layout.

I have the 2 motor version out here in oz at the local steelworks as Pacific National's PB class - http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=507010

Photos of RailServe's LEAF units are available at http://www.railserveleaf.biz/photo_gallery.html

RailPower is using SW platforms for its 2-unit chassis
http://www.rjcorman.com/railpower/products.html Click on the smallest locomotive for some dimensional details.

Perhaps the easiest way to build a 2-genset unit, might be to get an Atlas 3-genset body, remove a genset body unit and graft the remaining bits onto an SW chassis and cab?

Thanks John for all the info.....
The twin engine Gensets in use here are a little different than yours.
I have thought about taking the 3 engine and work it into a 2 engine Loco, but I also think there is a proper twin engine Genset out there somewhere.
I'm trying to post a picture of the line and engine I'm working on, but I can't get the picture to post.  I keep re-sizing it and it is about the size as a pack of smokes, and it's still too large.  I'll get help on that and send you a picture.

Benny
Thanks again,

Benny
