    • A friend recently purchased a resin 3d printer and has been printing 7/8 Feldbahn type parts, kits and complete rolling.  The kit below is a 7/8 Diesel mechanical Feldbahn type engine. The kit comes complete with a USA NW-2 motor block. To view more of what he has to offer, visit his Etsy site at SWC3DBackshop.

      What about a flat car on each end and a pole on each with a wire between them to make the cat purr?

       

       

       

       

      Dang! What a great idea! Since my entire 7/8 fleet is rather whimsey, I'm going to follow up with that.

      I'll store the battery and decoder in tool boxes or something.

    • John;

       

      What a neat little electric locomotive.  You could always say that she is running on the "virtual" third rail.  The real New Haven Railroad used both catenary and third rail over its lines.  I think the third rail was used mainly around metropolitan New York.

    • Fresh out of the shop, Old Sparky boxcab in 7/8" scale.

      The cat is for effect, she runs on bat/RC.

    • My club had me build, scratch-build, an N scale trestle and bridge for a display layout that in the end never happened.

      My eyes were crossed for days after that build.
