16 mm Scale internal combustion locomotive

Post by Tony Bird » Sun Nov 13, 2022 11:18 am

Hi,

A bit of a disaster at the Cardiff Model Engineering Society's Garden Railway, the high winds of last week caused a bough to fall from a tree and it landed on the track of the garden railway. Yesterday I went to inspect the damage and while there another member was testing a model he has nearly finished.

Take care Tony.

That little engine is impressively smooth and quiet. Usually those little IC engines are deafening and require a lot of reduction gearing. This one is really nice.

That does look beautifully engineered.
