New quarry engine

Post by markoteal » Sat May 25, 2019 8:38 pm

With no line to run, my stock building is key focus - I should really be just building wagons to build up the number I have BUT I do like a loco - so I’ve had a go at a Phil Sharples mini Jack kit - it just needs the electrics fitting and ready to go - including real crushed coal!

Nice one, Mark. Reminds me (sort of) of the Guinness Brewery engines.

Indoor shunting layout required for that loco :thumbup:

Using Deltang that could run R/C as well.

Agree with Tom, put it on an indoor line. It would look great pulling some beer barrels.... :lol: :lol:

Yes - its funny you should say that! If we end up renting, that's the route I'm going down as a temp measure - Tony Hill's (now sold ) Melin Llechi is an inspiration - I have wondered about starting some of the boards for the fabled garage section of CHLR mk2

And yes, will make sure its 'deltangable' - there is a discussion on F/B at the mo about making a plug in and out receiver unit so we can swap between locos easily - Phil at RC is involved via his Mrs

Tom, is there a way to get 'newest posts' to appear as top of the queue, at index level? - I tend to eventually read everything, but it is nice to see the most recent postings first.
