Ruston 48DS

This is 3D printed shell for an N scale version of the ubiquitous Ruston 48DS shunting locomotive. It is designed to fit the TU-7T chassis from Japan which is about the only decent chassis small enough. You will also need some lead or tungsten weight to put over the chassis and to do a spot of filing to make it all fit as it's not quite possible to print it to fit as is.

Note that the TU-7T is a 4.5v chassis so you should also fit either a resistor or limit the voltage.


IN: 1.055 w x 0.693 d x 0.63 h
CM: 2.68 w x 1.76 d x 1.6 h

I probably could but the equivalent Ruston below 3' gauge is actually a quite different beast. The frame width is also determined by the gauge so its slightyl more complicated than rescalig and fixing the thicknesses.

Cute. Are you able to scale it to 009 or HOe?
