Just thought I'd pop on a couple of pictures of my latest loco build. Nothing fancy, it's an old Bachmann battery RC 4-6-0, fitted with a later 'Annie' chassis, with the lot converted to on-board battery RC. A few mods to the tender to better represent the coal carrying capacity! Thanks to Phil at RC Trains, who ironed out a few issues with the first pass of RC kit, it's now running well and providing all year round power for the 'Tidewater and Lake Teslin RR',

That was a great kit bashing engine, so versatile and with the addition of their new chassis and easy repair and fix, had mine since they first came out and at that time there were no replacement chassis so I put a LGB mogul chassis under mine and added a trailing truck and came up with a prairie 2-6-2, shortened the smoke box back to the first set of rivets and cut the boiler at the last band before the cab. After shortening the tender about an 1 1/2" wound up with a engine and tender that is only about 3/8" longer than my mogul. Really like the color on you smoke box, Bill.

Loco looks great I live in calne didn't realise there was anyone in this area.
Hi, no I don't know of any more G'railers in the N. Wilts area, I haven't been a member of the G Scale Soc for many years, so have lost touch of who is doing what and where!

I really like this model

Now on the look out for an LGB mogul chsssis
Very reminiscent of two of the three 2-6-2 tender locos that I saw in Cuba in 2003
It would make a great addition to my Cuban Sugar Mill layout
Here’s a couple of pics showing Ifrain Alfonso Mills 1635 and Quintin Banderas Mills 1547
The third 2-6-2 tender loco on the Island was a conversion from a 2-6-2 tank and was 1538 at Cuidad Caracas Mill
