N Gauge Metropolitan E Class from Tiny Underground Models

Recommended Posts

Greetings all

After months of painstaking work I will shortly be releasing a print to my Shapeways shop to convert a Dapol M7 to a Metropolitan Railway E class 0-4-4T. Finished with parts from N Brass (chimney, dome etc.), this is my first foray into loco design. I had to do several test prints to get it right but I'm hopeful that I've ironed out the bugs now... More pictures of the prototype soon.

Hi everyone

Prototype now built. Not a high load puller, mostly because the Dapol M7 chassis used cannot get much traction from 4 driving wheels, even with a body packed with weights where feasible.

This example has been built by a friend of mine and I think you'll agree he's made an excellent job of it.
