Hey Ian, not sure if your solution would allow for a change, but if you can, I would drop the body lower. The cow catcher / snowplow should be a lot closer to the rails.

Don't know that I can get it any lower. It's the trade off using the Tillig gear tower instead of the original MTB's trucks that I think you designed it for. With the thicker .080" chassis plate it sits .040" higher than before but, it was still too high with the thinner chassis plate. At the moment it sits 4.0mm above the railhead.
To get the coupler anywhere near ( still a bit too high ) correct height I had to file out the coupler slot and pack the M.T 1016 down by .090".
I might make a new chassis plate using a set of MTB trucks and see how that turns out.
At the moment I will be looking for some VERY tall engineers to climb that first step to get into the cab :-)

If you heat them up gently you can stretch their legs :wink:
