Product Description
Another loco I've been wanting. Not quite finished but at least you can see where I'm going with it. So far I haven't found a mechanism that will fit, but in the meantime I am borrowing an idea from and article in the March/April 2015 edition of N Scale Railroading by Mike Pagano. In the article he wants to have a Little Giant crane pulling a short work train. The crane model was too small (and too full of stuff) to motorize so he instead, used a Kato 11-106 powered chassis under a modified Kato caboose to act as a locomotive in disguise. I built mine using a Roundhouse (now Athearn) wooden caboose. I discovered another interesting thing about the Kato chassis is that the truck wheelbase matched the caboose kit's archbar trucks exactly. Carefully filing down the stock Kato sideframes and lining up and attaching the archbar sideframes pretty much completes the mechanics of the job. I have yet to add weight to mine, so right now it doesn't push much of anything. This little Whitcomb is designed as a free-rolling model requiring the addition of wheelsets. It will also make a great flatcar load or rusty relic waiting for restoration or scrapping somewhere on your layout.
