Wednesday again, a morning pottering around with bits and pieces resulted in this idea for a 1930s vintage 2-4-2 diesel loco which is inspired by a conversation on the MTI forum, and by email, with Giles Barnabe and Ian Bareham.
The mechanism is a two axle motor bogie from a OO scale DMU and the cab is obviously from a Gnomy truck but the bonnet may be a bit harder to recognise.
It’s from a Tri-ang Battlespace searchlight wagon, picked up from a junk box beneath a trade stand at a show in Prestatyn a few years ago.
Whether or not this loco will make it to the main FCPyF layout is anybody’s guess. There is an ever growing number of part built locos, and a large pile of scrap, in the yard at Cuarto Sheds!
