Thanks Philip, I was happy with the fact that the cannon transporter and simplex worked so well. It ran flawlessly for 40 minutes over 9 dead frogs and no stalls. The test track was cheap Bachmann HO stuff.

The Next engine to work on is a captured German Deutz Gas Mechanical. These came in several flavors.

Here is one type captured by the Canadians.



One captured by the Americans.

Look for a post next week of a running model (no pressure).

Looks like the Canadian one has a flat tire.

Here is the start of the Deutz.
It is a 3d printed shell from shapeways https://www.shapeways.com/product/KUKMLSYGV/b-1-43-deutz-loco-2a?li=shop-results&optionId=17016791 and a custom drive combining 3d printing and operating motor, gears and wheels. The drive is from Mark Clark in the UK https://www.locosnstuff.com/.

The 3d print is not as fine as it could be but I can live with it using the 3 foot rule.

Thanks Jerry,

At the ON30 Mid Hudson meet, my old friend Less Davis gave me some bits to get going on some US WW1 wagons to go with the soon to be delivered WW1 Baldwin.

Here are some WIP pictures and a sample of what the wagons look like in 1:1.









I am also working on some Brass Captured German equipment. That progress will be slower as I need to learn how to use the new resistance Soldering station I purchased.

I have been using modified Grandt Line Link and Pin couplers for some of my builds but have almost run out. These were supplied with the Kopple side dump ore cars. Does anyone happen to have any of these they do not need?

Sorry I missed this Hudson,

Larry, but, close, about six pair of the Gilpin car ones...different shank...

That's fine, it'll make another trip kid.

While I don't have any of the Grandt Line link & pin couplers, check with San Juan Models as they have taken over the Grandt line product line and a back producing parts.

The cars look good by the way.

Just went through all 30 pages again. You sure have performed an enormous amount of tedious and highly detailed work into this huge project. And it is very entertaining and interesting to view. Nice job Larry!!!
