Class 13 from Bachmann 08's

Recommended Posts

Some time ago there was a thread asking whether anyone had built/converted a Class 13 from RTR 08 locos.

I built one about 3 years ago from two Bachmann 08's so as to get the correct footplate box/engineroom door combination.

I've recently had them out of their box to change the DCC number and I've photographed them today before they go away again for now.

Only the Master unit is motorised but the Slave has had a bit of extra weight added to improve the running and lessen the chance of the wheels skidding.

The loco is awaiting weathering so appears very clean in the pictures - i'll re-photograph the loco once weathered in a couple of months or so and post the new pictures then.

I'll be happy to answer any questions about the model

Good work, Very nice conversion - Look forward to the weathering.


Many thanks indeed for your kind comment.

I'm afraid I'm  a bit behind with weathering some of my models but I'm hoping to get back to it and catch up a bit over the next few months. Once my 13 gets the treatment i'll bump the thread and post some updated photos of the weathered loco for you.


Best Wishes
