VR Flat Top T Class

Everything except the bogies and couplers on this locomotive are scratchbuilt. The handrailwas are 6-thou brass wire and the steps are hand cut and are glued from 5 thou syrene. The chassis is made from 40 thou (1mm) styrene, the body 10 thou styrene, and the fuel tank hand carved lead . The next group of locos Paul intends to use power pickup bogies and light locos. The Series 3 T is being built now and the VR Y class is next.

The hand-painted VR is located in a 0.7mm circle on each end of the locomotive.
The Series 3 Chassis, Series 1 T and DERM.
Yes it is T gauge!!
Have a closer look!!

Paul hopes to begin modelling as many of the features and bridges on the Orbost line as possible. He hopes to recreate the feel of travelling from Bairnsdale to Orbost in 1980, on a tour special. But thats another post. :-)
Happy modelling!!
