Uniquely individual, handmade, fine scale models for around the same price as those mass produced, pre-built, all look alike, Chinese toys. We will sell nothing until it looks so good we want to keep it.
Can your locomotives do this? Bad track, dead switch points or throws, this locomotive just keeps on running. Custom Bachmann On30 Scale 0-6-0 Porter Locomotive with coal tender, DCC, Soundtraxx Tsunami Sound, Train Control Systems (TCS) Keep Alive KA4, and working direction controlled LED headlight. This is the new SoundTraxx Econami sound system with tons of volume (we had to turn it down 40% and it's still too loud), and lots of options - not the old stripped down version. Since all the electronics are in the locomotive cab, the cab alone runs great even without the tender. But, for those with really poor track, that need the extra power pickups, we include the tender with micro plug connectors. The tender couples to the cab just like any other freight car.
We started with a brand new Bachmann HO scale 0-6-0 Porter locomotive with factory DCC. We up scaled the HO body by adding an O scale steam dome, giant smokestack, LED headlight, bell with pull cable, whistle with pull cable, open Porter cab, side air tanks, stirrup steps front & rear, and a custom built wood sided coal tender with a full load of coal, grab irons, brake wheel, and metal wheels with power pickups. We added fully painted and weathered Engineer and Fireman figures, then painted and weathered the entire locomotive inside and out. The finished model has several coats of acrylic weathering with a final light coat of dust, so it will look good (or would that be bad) for many years to come.
After all that work, we couldn't resist running it around the test track a few times so it probably has ten minutes or less of run time on it before we cleaned the wheels and packed it up. Not only does it look great with Bachmann 18' cars (not included), but it ran great on our 15" radius test track with no problems even with 18' On30 freight cars coupled to it. All the original Soundtraxx Tsunami & TCS KA4 paperwork is included, so you can play with the cv codes all you like, but not the original box since it doesn't fit in it anymore. You will receive the actual model shown in the photos. Items combined if possible and include professional packing and insurance. Background scenery, track and On30 freight cars are NOT included.
