I have been bitten by the On 18 bug. I have no space for a layout so a mini is just right. I am building a shadow box style layout based upon the Glazier Stove Company (circa 1900) in Detroit, Mi. Photos of the company can be found on Shorpy, http://www.shorpy.com/image/tid/316

Here is the picture that inspired the layout.

Nice job on the loco. I really like that last photo as well. The locomotive fits the scene perfectly.

Wow! That looks great, nice work!

Lillyfork Posted - 08/29/2016 : 10:24:23 PM

Here it is prior to weathering and installing the lights. I have used micro LEDs and one of those same jewelry pieces that made shades on the pole lamps for a reflector.

The layout is shaping up nicely and you've got an outstanding collection of critters going, nice work! Looking forward to seeing more!

Neil M Posted - 08/02/2016 : 05:55:12 AM
The layout looks great Henry, and that little articulated loco is coming along very nicely. It's a bit of a weird one but I'd run it for sure

Maybe you can add some dummy rodding to the valve chests like you see on models of locos with inside Stevenson's valve gear, since there should be a rod from the centre of all the pistons and the valve pistons stick out past the connecting rods cover.

Thanks for all the comments.

Nice to hear from you, Tom. Too bad you couldn't make the Narrow Gauge Union meet in Roanoke last April. Perhaps we will see each other soon.

A piece of plastic pipe sas used as the boiler. Because the pipe did not accept glue well, I covered it with a thin plastic sheet wrap. The boiler front was cut from an HO A6 and applied.
I modified the connections to the motive units so that I would use only two screws instead of the four shown in the drawing. It works well although the four screw system would also have worked. (Read: I may have made a mistake.)

The water tank sides were fiddely. I had difficulty embossing the thin plastic sheet in a straight line. The photo shows an early attempt which was corrected.

I also made the tanks too thin. Fixed that too.

the stack is a piece of tubing with half-round stock glued to the top and an rivet embossed sleeve at the bottom. No attempt was made to fit a flange. With all the stuff that will be near the stack only close observation would notice.

Hank.....you're killing me with this thread!! Beautiful work on concept and execution. Love your choices in motive power and the shadow box really sets it off. (looks pretty "british" to me!)
I've been considering doing something similar in 1/35 scale using HO components. Your thread is really sparking interest.
Let me know when you are heading "to the beach" and we can run some Maine narrow gauge....tom (the other Sullivan!)
George D Posted - 08/01/2016 : 10:47:59 AM
Another unique loco. Looks like you've done some very clever design work.

Lillyfork Posted - 08/01/2016 : 10:25:21 AM

The first step is to make sure that the mechanisms would work properly and that the decoder installation worked.

The two N gauge mechanisims were dismantled and a relief for the motor wires was cut. Since each side of the metal casting is energized and isolated from each other, I simply clamped brass shim stock between them and used the light bulb to secure and seperate them.

Leaving the superstructure in place made attachment points for detail and to connect the two units together.

A speaker enclosure was constructed on the forward mechanism. A small cell phone type speaker was glued to it using Walthers Goop to make sure the joint was air tight.
A flat area upon which the new superstructure could rest was added.

Since no linkages to the cylinders could be provided, I made up an access hatch for hidden mechanical linkage to the wheels. Who knows what is hidden behind all that stuff, but it is more interesting than a flat something or another.

Pinning the connection between the units will make maintenance easier. It looks ratty but it works!

Special care was taken so that the motor leads did not short against the castings.

Very nice!
Lillyfork Posted - 07/29/2016 : 10:58:33 PM
What a deal an oil burning articulated steam engine powered by two diesels!
Lillyfork Posted - 07/29/2016 : 10:56:31 PM
The Lillyfork industrial division will get a new locomotive. I don't know where I got this drawing, but I gave it a go.
