Tri-ang Transcontinental R.55 - Hornby Doublo 3 rail conversion Project Update #1.5 unaware of aware of class 20 and R.235 modification plus "BS" mods

Posted by The Tri-ang scale modeler , 10 September 2017 · 188 views

I was doing some shopping apparently on the international eBay as I really never have done before but have shopped on the American site... and found something I never knew of which was the class 20 Bo-Bo diesel, but I have found a few parts and a working model . So I have made the executive decision to purchase one eventually not the actual loco but the part, and re-utilizing the Bogie attachment from the class 43 from the class 20 part to actually hold it up, Now i'll consider kit bashing a pickup for the rear motor attachment. But for now to tell you the truth i'll keep it simple.


If I were to acquire a few Tri-ang R.235's but with the bogies removed and more prototypical HO one's attached to lesser the load and produce a longer train, to produce less stress on the pickup of course this is when I acquire funds though a firm who I employed with for the summer.(not railway's).. now I am doing this with some Battle Space equipment which I will post later. And they are going brilliantly! I'll also be adding some Kadee Coupler's as well to give it that more realistic.
