On30 0-4-0 BIG Porter Locomotive DCC SoundTraxx Sound w/TCS-KA4


All custom, scratch built, one-of-a-kind, On30 0-4-0 BIG Porter Locomotive & Tender with DCC SoundTraxx #881006 2-Watt LOUD Sound with TCS-KA 4. Bad track, dead switch points or throws, don’t matter. Handmade from the ground up starting with a smooth running motor block from an On30 Bachmann 4-4-0 Outside Framed Russian Locomotive and tons of detail parts from several other locos. Some of the boiler & cab are heavily modified parts from an On30 Bachmann 2-6-0. Full boiler head valve/piping details were taken from a mix of locos. Most of the tender is scratch built on a smaller 4-4-0 Inside Frame locomotive tender frame using the original trucks and power pickups on all the wheels. Tender plugs in under the cab using the original micro plugs and board from the 4-4-0 Russian. This loco just keeps on running even on tight 10″ radius curves! It runs so slow, you won’t have the patience to wait for it to go around a 10″ radius circle. The boiler cab assembly can be lifted off the chassis by loosening the center set screw underneath the smokestack and wiggling the cab off of the rear tab like many Bachmann locos if maintenance is required. The tender shell can be lifted off the chassis by removing the 4 corner screws under the chassis to access the DCC electronics & speaker. Don’t like our sound choices? That’s okay, there’s 15 other whistle choices and lots of other sounds for you to tinker with on this SoundTraxx decoder. You will receive the actual locomotive only as shown in the video and photos. Background scenery, track, On30 freight cars, and On30 2-6-0 comparison loco are NOT included. Items combined if possible and include professional packing and insurance. I’ve built thousands of locomotives like this. You will not find a smoother running, nicer looking, more highly detailed locomotive, like this anywhere else at this price that runs this well on 10 inch radius curves.
