Vulcan Iron Works Duplex

Hello all . I am looking for any plans for a Vulcan Duplex ? I have the best article I could find in the 1971 Railroading magazine but no drawing . I have a good outline drawing but no demensions that are not mentioned already on pictures of the engine. Anyone got anything ? I want to draw one up in solidworks and build one in g scale

You could try to query Bachmann. About two decades ago they were going to release a 1:20.3 model of that locomotive, but the modelers nicknamed it “Spock” and nixed it. They may still retrain their research materials.

Best, David Meashey

wow that woud be interesting if they would actually allow me to see the drwaings . I will give it a try

When I decided I wanted Amtrak in a " larger" G-sale version I just drew up my own plans and winged it then posted pics of my process and that’s when the REAL drawings arrived via collections of old magazines which I still have a bunch passed down to me by my elders that I need to pass on!

I have a PDf measuring tool and a good outline that I am putting measurments on so I am working on it that way also

I had a tape measure a pencil and a dream is all I was saying. But I managed to build it all and still continue to run it as interest allows. John are you building a model to play with or a shelf display I have kinda done both myself.

Beutiful work . I want to do a operating engine if I can other wise shelf is good too LOL
Here are some of the parts and drawings I have done


SO I contacted Bachmann and a gentlemen responded . He said they never got past just talking about building one and that he had a PFM Model and he gave that away
