HO GE 50 Ton Steeplecab- Large Pantograph Edition

Made by
3D printed in matte translucent plastic that showcases fine and intricate details.
Product Description
This is my HO scale General Electric 50 Ton Steeplecab, designed to fit on the second generation Bachmann 44 tonner chassis block with a central motor. This will need to be modified by simply removing the fuel tank part of the casting and fitting 10.5mm wheels from the Bachmann 70 ton switcher (or other models). The model was scaled using dimensions I took from a real 50 ton locomotive. The pantograph supports on the roof have been scaled at 34.5 x 20.0mm centres to suit a spare Pantograph that I found on a Mehano GG1.

The model is devoid of most details so these can be custom added by the builder to suit a particular prototype, and there are Sideframes and a separate sprue available from this shop that contains headlights, steps, trolley pole retrievers, etc. Additional parts will be required to finish, plus some degree of skill and patience.
