Ex SECV Malcolm Moore

Post by Tropic Blunder » Sat Sep 29, 2018 1:28 am

Hi all some photos of my latest project, 3d printed body, buffer beams and doors on a modified bachmann little big haulers chassies. Basically i just cut anything remotely steam engine like off with a dremel and epoxied my new pieces on. Loco is radio controlled with deltang equipment with 8 cells just squeezing in.

The real locomotives were built by Malcolm Moore engineering (in Melbourne Australia where i live) for the state electricity commission of Victoria for the construction of the Kiewa Dam. Upon completion 4 were sent to other civil engineering projects in NSW and QLD, one went to forestry work in WA (and survives to this day) one was retained for use at the SECV railway in Yallourn (the subject of my model) and the remainder were sent to Tasmania to be converted into the TGR U class. two were given the U class treatment but converted to Meter gauge and ended up in Thailand as part of the colombo plan.

That looks nice and chunky. Did you print it yourself?
