The TML shops just received parts to build a new top secret weapon from the War Ministry. If trials go well the Ministry said they will order thousands of units. Under heavy guard the shipping tarp was pulled of the body to be used for the trials.



TML Management suspect that the Ministry have also sent parts to other Railroads for trials!

If those other Railroads want to join in this thread so be it.

Oh, the lawyers reminded me; I paid for the kit and have no affiliation with the Resin War Ministry.

Most impressive, Larry! I would not want to be a desperado facing that armored beast. And mind you, turtle bites can be pretty nasty...

So much for secrecy when you post pictures all over the internet.

Can't wait till I get mine, as the Clearwater Valley Railway Co also has something in the works.

Pete,
Did Brian Burke set me up for that one? I'm thinking maxim guns right now, no heavyweight cannons, but who knows.

Ron,
Waiting for a build from you.

But I do remember the Gundola!

Looks like we have some interest in the build. I do need a little help, I can not find the Athearn EMD 40 for sale anywhere I want to deal with. Does anyone have one that they can measure the wheelbase for me? I have lots of small drives to use.

Larry, what's all this talk of secret weapons & turtles?
All I see is a empty white shell sitting on those cars there, with no signs of turtles or any other reptiles.
It looks to me, like some kind of armoured Marshmallow cooker that's being transported & guarded so closely.
I'm going to keep a watchful eye on this story.
