Australian based Ixion almost completed the designwork for a 70 hp, siderod-driven Shunter. Made by the british company Fowler, similar locos were produced by Baldwin. So I think, they may feel "at home" at US-layouts too, and I know a certain member of freerails, who is quite interested in this funky kind of diesels :mex:
The model is 0 scale standard gauge 2-rail. (I'm really disappointed it's not 0n30 :us: ) EDM models started a special sound project and will provide a decoder with prototypical sounds (recorded from "close relatives", as the original prototype never exists)

Here are the links:

Aw come on Michael--

O scale standard gauge?  Me--and who else?

Neat little loco.. Going to have to start putting money in the cookie jar for that one!

It reminded me of the Baldwin kits we recently bought, Herb.
