    Hi all,:wave::wave: been absent for a while, just like to share some Pics.
    of my latest Loco Bash. Bought two old Rivarossie O scale
    Indiana Harbor Belt Locos and bashed them into an 2-6-6-4
    Mallet, twin Motored, runs very nicely.:thumb::thumb:

    This last Pic. shows an HO scale GP7 as comparison to size.
    She's a BIG Loco, measures 2ft. long overall.

    The motor for the front driver set is hidden in the front cylinder block.

    That too beautiful to call a "kitbash", that is quite an engineering feat. That is an awesome locomotive, It would be nice to see more pictures of the whole set up. Great work!

    That is beautiful. a very interesting use of some old stuff to make a monster locomotive.





    I keep hoping I will be able to find one of the old AHM O scale Genoa kits.


    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Bill,
    Keep an eye on ebay, you might get lucky.
    These old Rivarossi locos build into nice models with a bit of work.
    They run surprisingly well, smooth and quiet.
    Cheers, Joe.

    I try not to look on E-bay for that very reason.

    with a large H0 and HOn3 layout, and some On3 and On30 stuff on the shelf, and some of my Dad's G gauge stuff down in the garage , I need an O 4-4-0 like a hole in the head, although it would look great on a mantle with a Labelle combine and coach , and I would have a whole lot of fun.

    I have so much stuff I'd like to do, not enough time, space or money to even begin.

    I know how you feel, been there, done that. I keep coming back to O scale, 2 rail, you just can't beat it.
    Now I'm retired I'm having a ball with it, you only live once, so blow the expence.
