There are some weird things on narrow gauge railways.

None more so than the home made locomotives often found on small industrial lines. This one appears to be a conglomeration of American army Jeep, scrap wood, corrugated iron sheets and a railway wagon chassis.

It’s no less ugly from the rear!

Slightly more conventional, but equally weird looking, is another new diesel under construction for my On18 layouts.

I haven’t decided how to model the rear of the cab yet, and the loco may be too big for the tunnel on Allt-Na-Ballt, but it will be used for pulling passenger trains on Muston Sands and the combination of a Kato mechanism with plenty of added weight makes it an excellent slow runner for shunting on Farrall Sidings.
