Have done some work on the car,
some little details.


Additional pickups from nickel silver wire,
for the insulated wheels.

And painted her in MOW brown.


Wonder how to block those spare trucks from moving ?
Blocks, or chains ?

Have to do some research on the subject.

Si. stay tuned.

Have finished another trolley crane last evening.

Sacramento Valley needs lots of wrecking cars,
as they suffer plenty of derailments due to deferred maintenance.

Pics. soon.

Here they come...

Had hoped for better pictures.
Hope I am better in scratchbuilding than in photography.  


Motor car has got a larger pantograph, and roofwalk + trolley pole,
for awkward situations that may happen when recovering wrecked trolleys. 





Crane still without upper chain wheel.

Originally the boom was far higher,
and the chain stretched from the rear wheel to the end of the boom,
without touching the center tower.





Trucks are slightly modified to better match prototypes,
and secured by both blocks and chains.

Gerold

I love your crane car.

I have a crane car project,
half finished for thirty years.

:sad:

Regards, Dave L.

Started an easy project - A TMER "Duplex" articulated coach.


It already has a can motor,
beautifully (factory ?) painted, decaled, glazing installed.

Just needs additional pickups, a decoder,
and a LED in the headlight.


A handicap is that the floor of the A-Unit holds the power truck only,
and the truck under the articulation comes loose when separating the cars.

So I couldn't do test runs.
So fabricated a piece of temporary floor extension, to hold the truck.

Wiring to it has a plug, so it will be easier to assemble the whole thing,
and there is an additional long wire that will extend to the rear truck later.
