MOC: Sante Fe Based engine - 7 wide
Posted 07 March 2010 - 03:36 PM
Well the parts arrived yesterday, took 2 hours to build from the mlcad programme, also had to make some minor changes for under roof re-enforcement.
As said is 7 wide, and this uses the RC Bugger motor, and the battery space is suitable for either the actualy battery back (as seen) for which as you will also see sits in a hole to lower its height.. or the new Re-chargeable pack will fit if you do not want the hole...
Anyway less talk, lets see it...
Side views, spot the battery pack hanging...
So what is inside.. not much, but it fits!

Also being brick built adds some much needed weight or the engine goes just too fast and flies off the rails on the corners (in testing with battery, motor it did that!)
I am working on the carriages now, at least up to the point where I wait for more parts to arrive..

Are you planning to build some cars to go with it?

It seems based on an F7, which is a four axle (BB) locomotive, so it wouldn't need extra axles and wheels. It could do with some sort of fuel tank, though. Would also help to hide the batterybox.
Other then that, a great build.
