After reading the post about 1:55n3 I got a bit curious about it.

One important feature of this scale is cost.
It seemed to me that the ideal testbed for this scale would be a Fantasy gas powered switcher.
I've been spending a bit of time examining the AHM Yugoslavian made GE 35 ton switcher.
I got mine as a broken down and beat up model for free.
Yet, the motor still works!
I've read that these do not run well, but when I applied power the mechs ran smooth enough for what I am interested in.

Here is a side shot of the unmodified shell.

Did I ever mention that I like trains?
