Well its taken a few years to build on a stop start project was half painted for a long time !! It is totally scratchbuilt bar wheels motor gears couplings and drivers . It built on two old Playmobil motor blocks ! Which has caused problems with a decoder fitted now resolved thanks to the lads on here see DCC topics . Not to scale length !!
I must say diesel locos are much harder to build than steam !! This is my 5th scatchbuilt diesel. Maybe a Portuguese 1800 class (A Baby class 50) who knows !! Although it will be a while !! DSCF7292a.JPG DSCF7294a.JPG DSCF7296a.JPG DSCF7299a.JPG
