Hey guys!

Short info about my Dash Chassis!
The metal frames arrived me last week and now I'm waiting for the ordered parts of Tillig!
In the appendix you will find 2 pictures of my work!

In the picture you can see the C44-9W, AC4400 with Ready Chassis, at the middle the metal Chassis and at the front the SD70 and left the M630W. The M630W get a modified frame as 5 mm Shorter!

Next step are the SD60m and the SD60E Triclops

I think the price is 155,-€ for a rtr chassis!

Michael

Hey guys,

The first chassis are ready for shipping.
The final price is 161,-€ and you get a ready assembled chassis-see pictures!

If you are interested in the chassis, please specify the loco type!
For some models M630W there are adjustments to the bottom plate!

Without restrictions for a AC4400, SD70AC and Dash 9

What is the minimum radius for the chassis, and can it run on code 72 tracks?

You can drive through the smallest TT radius (r 267 mm). But I recommend the next bigger, because of the coupler!

Standard Tillig Wheelsets - Which track you are taking?

I think there is no problem, otherwise Tillig would not be able to drive on the tracks!

I would say: Yes it is DCC friendly. Michael drives with DCC. Remove the two copper wires and connect the cables from the trucks and motor to a decoder.
