Yes indeedy !

The Backwoods Miniatures conversion kit is an interesting looking mod.



Looks like it's for an HO loco, not sure which one.

A mighty fine & unusual On30 loco fer sure.

:moose:

Si.

Of course, starting with an HO loco, means that the drivers are of a small diameter, very much in line with a typical industrial prototype.

Looking on the net for 'Glover Machine Works' stuff...

...turned up this link, which is to a 1:48 museum display model of the Glover Works.

Plenty of mini-Moguls produced between those 4 walls !!

Option 1: it is an enormous flatcar.
Option 2: that is very small engine.

I guess the crew had to be kneeling in that cab! Safety helmet mandatory?

Si Are you familiar with Sir Terry Pratchett's Discworld series?
One novel called "Raising Steam" which is about the invention of the steam locomotive and the rise of the railroad.
I think you'd enjoy it.

Si, the Backwoods kit is intended for an HO Bachmann 0-6-0. The On30 2-6-0 mechanism MIGHT work...maybe with some fiddlin'. Yes, those small cabs were called "skull crackers" for some unknown reason.

Hi Rick :wave:


I do know several BIG fans of Terrys 'Disc World' sagas.

I have not got round to them myself though.

Well, if there's a TRAIN book, I might well have to check it out ! :bg:

No worries, I ain't gonna use the Backwoods kit, any which way.

But it is a nice pic.

Great for On30, using the HO mech. probably.

1:35n2 I think that generally that mech. looks a bit small perhaps.

Mmm...

Or not, if you want really small 'industrial' wheels.


:moose:


Si.


Page 88 & 89 in the Glover book are my favs. so far ! :bg:

Si

If you read Terry Pratchett's "Raising Steam", you will need to read the companion book. Mrs BRADSHAW's Handbook
to ravelling upon the ANKH-MORPORK & STO PLAINS HYGENIC RAILWAY.:moose:

Absolutely a necessity to read Mrs. Bradshaw's Guide!
