    This 0n30 Dunkirk is a Bolder Valley models body kit sitting on an H0 Athern SW1200 chassis.

    Very cool, Shamus! ;cool:
    I'm not familiat with a Dunkirk locomotive.
    What was the prototype it is based on?

    That's brilliant shamus.

    Can I ask - is the lump in the middle where the motor for the SW is protypical? I know the dunkirks had their engine there, like class A climaxes, but did it look like that in real life?

    If it did then I would consider building one of those in HO

    Its not the engine that you can see,you cannot see the motor at all. Its the furnishings inside.here's a photo
    side on for you.

    That photo is much clearer. Thanks!

    I've seen a couple of photos on the gearedsteam website but they all suggested that you could see through the loco at floor level between the doors.

    It's a gorgeous model - did you make the truck side frames or are they commercial parts?

    Ah - I went and looked at the boulder valley web site and see the side frames are part of the kit
