Be nice to have something to replace the Lionel conversions.

it looks interesting, but which truck in particular are you using ... i don't know a BTTB truck that would be right for a GP9 one.

No-no-no, the trucks will be resin cast, made by RailTT; I mean some other parts - engine, etc.

Guys, I have a question. Nikolay wanted to use BTTB couplers and planned sell this model mostly in Russia and Ukraine.
But as for me, I prefer Kadee couplers, and he is ready to make the Kadee-equipped version
Nikolay mounted couplers on the trucks, but it looks quite ugly.
What is your opinion: if he mount the Kadee couplers on the frame, not on the truck, will it cause the derailment of cars on the 310-mm radiuses?

Good work, but I am sorry to see that he has chosen 50 years old Zeuke drive - which was not good even when it was new.
If he spent all that time and skills on a drive based on Kuehn, Tillig, MTB, or Roco the result could be much better.
The technology has developed somehow during those 50 years...

This model was made not for general sale. I did it for myself. Then he saw some of my friends, and they wanted for themselves in exactly the same performance.
This is a very cost-effective variant.
They will be made of several pieces (5 to 10 units).
