|Bachmann On30 Davenport|
“Bachmann’s On30 Davenport “Critter”, an 0-4-0 side rod gas mechanical diesel locomotive seems to replicate a 10 ton switcher..”
The above is taken from the June 2004 issue of Finescal Railroader, article by Allen K. Littlefield.
So. With that in mind this will be a bash into one slightly larger then twice the size .. an On30 0-4-4-0, 25 ton side rod gas mechanical diesel locomotive.
I was looking at the new Bachmann On30 Whitcomb 50-ton center-cab diesel and thought .. “hmmm” looks like a double-ended Davenport. I wondered how hard it would be to do this to a couple of Davenports. The biggest problem is extending the frame to hold all the other ‘bits’. I’m going to explore that .. see where it goes.
