Recommended Posts

I have been building for myself a loco using the Chivers RC23 C&M Chevlier fitted to a Minitrains F&C chassis

the chassis



body fitted to chassis




next to a peco L&B wagon



next to a Minitrains F&C loco



next to a A1 models Kerr stuart



next to a Tebee 3d printed loco



next to a peco coach



I have replaced the cab roof in the kit which is white metal with a plastic one to help move the ballance paint forword


the rear wheel is just in front of the cab


I have almost finished the loco I still need to add coal

I made up the body but i also cut out the coutout on the iner tank side ( still need to remove the plastic boiler boten from the chassis

as the motor on the chassis fits in to the cab & not the boiler i have made a new one from brass tube which i have filled with low melt solder to add weight over the wheels
