    Here is my latest project sunning itself on my knee because I don't have a layout yet. It is a Jordan 12 ton Mack with a modified Bachman 44 tonner truck to power it. I added some weight and it will pull 7 empty coal hoppers on the flat. There is still room for a decoder. I think the other truck will become a GE 25 tonner.

    Wow... :thumb: If you don't mind my asking, how much trouble was it to shoehorn in the power truck?

    Here are before and after photos of the drive. Most of the project time was figuring this out. Now instead of the motor being held by the top half it is held by two inverted L shapes that mount over the original sideframe pins and are held in place by the shell. Overall the locomotive took me about 14 hours or so but that includes figuring out the drive had the right wheelbase and making it fit, making the grabs, adding weight, painting and assembly. It was a fun project.

    Here is the little guy spotting a car for loading at the Reallyneedshandrails Mine on my start of a layout. The loadout is totally scratchbuilt as well.

    I must confess I occasionally forget the world is not all HO which is what I happen to model.
