  6. Hi all,

    A few pics of possible kits for the future, the first being  a scaled-down version of the US Army WWI tank car. This has been modified slightly to use our standard skip frames as a wagon to run behind the Baldwin 35Hp loco.

     couple more for the Blog IMG_0396[1] 
     IMG_0399[1]  

     

    The next is a small welding/tool wagon based upon our skip frame chassis.

    Please let us know if you would like to see these as kits, if we recieve enough intrest and they appear popular enough, they will be produced in the near future,
     
    All for now,

  7. Hi all,

    A quick update re the ready to run Baldwin and Decauville locos,

     Baldwin 1  Baldwin 2

    As can be seen there has been significant progress on the Baldwin and the patterns will be cast soon, a few adjustments are required of the etches but not far off now.

     

    The Decauville has been delayed and hopefully will be ready around March or April 2016, again patterns are being cast now.

    Further updates to follow,
