Hi Guys

As promised, ive finally managed to get the basic concept of my twin bogie BoBo live diesel locomotive, using my OS FS four stroke nitro engine.

I may be wrong, but from the research that I have done, I am either one of the first, OR THE FIRST PERSON, to make an Electric start, 4 stroke live diesel locomotive, as all others using the 4 stroke I believe were pull start.

It is a very basic layout at the moment, and was really just to test out my scratch built chassis (made using shelve units) and the Electric start of the 4 stroke, and how to couple it to my generator.

After looking the very fine craftsmanship, seen in the videos produced by David (dewintondave), I agree that although the noise o=from the four stroke is much more acceptable and scale, then the 2 strokes ive been using, it could still do with silencing some more, and i do plan on building a exhaust pipe out of copper pipes of various sizes in due course.

I have more videos of this loco uploading to youtuve as we speak, so stay tuned#
