There is a prototype for everything!
That is why I don’t count rivets
Interesting use of the brake stands to adjust coupler height. Can’t wait to get my new Bachmann Dash9 to kit bash!
Saw that on Facebook. Battery operated, adjustable height couplers on a single 6 axle truck. Frankenloco.
Yea, the adjustable height couplers are cool.
This is one of those “what do I do with all the left over parts from my donor locomotives after my kit bash project” builds. Just start throwing parts anywhere. Makes me feel a lot better about my modeling. Likely what I consider mistakes, someone somewhere did on purpose.
That is a really cool rig and here I thought that kind of Yankee ingenuity was a lost art.
