    Hi folks, I did mention my Mentor had moved to Brighton ;)
    Well he has a nice big hobby room and has his L/O up and running.

    Here are a few shots Dave sent me tonight, the first unit you see has just come of the Scratch and bash assembly line now located in Brighton :D :D :D

    WOW! :eek: :thumb:

    That's what I'm looking for :) :thumb:


    I do have the frame/motor & trucks of an older Athearn switcher.
    Maybe I can do something similar. I never scratchbuilt a locomotive before :confused:

    Hi CN 1 I just checked your web site pic of that Great "Montreal" Electric, is it Z -1 A, Z -4A, Z-5A??

    That is a fantastc electric line to model, is that what you are doing??
    You should be able to scratch build them easily :thumb:

    I don’t know what it is called :confused:

    That's exactly what I have in mind. I want to add it to the existing layout. I'm building the catenaries to look like the one use there. It's not going to be a long run, but it will do some [passenger] cars switching and tunnel operations. :)

    Yikes! That's what I'm afraid off. :( I have no idea how to get started. I don't know what kind of pantograph to get either! It's going to be quite an adventure. I'm searching the 'net for more pictures of it (the more the better)

    Overhead-traction-juice thingy is very addictive :wave: :wave:

    I will post all the pics and info I have.
    In this section under Montreal Electrics for C N 1 :thumb:

    Then maybe some ideas you may use. :)

    PS where are you located ?

    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    That's a great looking layout Dave has there and using natural sunlight for the photos sure makes a difference.

    The model above actually looks like a pair of Roundhouse diesel-boxcab bodies stuck together on top of what might be an Athearn SW7 chassis. Whether it is or not, it looks like fun!

    Looks good though ;) and they do run better then most traction motors out there in H O.
