That's it, just like the old (Greek?) myth about the guy that had to keep rolling the boulder up the hill only to watch it roll down so he could start again?

Finally got around to working on the TR2 project again.

The prototype had a semi-permanent coupling between the cow & the calf. I simulated that with a built up draw bar from two pieces of round stock and a piece of strip brass soldered together.

Image

I drilled and tapped that bar that holds the coupler on for an 0-80 screw to hold the draw bar in.

Image

Looks like it should be OK on standard radius curves.

Image

Progress is slow. I'll get'er done one of these days.

It's working it's way there. Need to make up the hand rails yet and add "glass" for the windows. It's going to have handrails mounted to the frame, not the hood. Like my HO model.

I still have some Floquil paint. Don't know if I'll do it in my old paint scheme of yellow and green or my NYC style of gray, red and lighting stripe.

Here's the two paint schemes.

The NYC style in red, gray and white.

Image

And the NYC style in green, yellow and black.

Image

The F3 color scheme came from the local phone company's trucks when they were here. Their trucks were painted upper body green, black stripe around the middle and yellow on the bottom. I just flipped the colors and took on the NYC style scheme. This is what "proto freelancing" is all about.

Also the lettering on the engines was before I came up with the name of the New York, Vermont & Northern. The idea of a coal hauling line is why I called railroad the "Black Diamond Lines". The permanent name now is, New York, Vermont and Northern with the theme of "Route of the Black Diamonds"

The TT scale models will be following in this scheme. I'll probably use both colors. The green, yellow & black for the early transition diesels and equipment. The red, white & gray for the section generation equipment.

Now all I need to do is finally build the layouts. :o :shock:

Ooooo, gotta have me some of those. IIRC, CGW had more TR2s than any other road.

I like the Green, Yellow & Black.

Although the Red, White & Black looks nice too. :smile:

If I had another switcher in TT scale I'd go for a TR3.
