Product Description
Go to WWW.ATSFNSCALEMODELS.COM for information on ATSF N scale models.

These sideframes are designed to fit a TOMYTEC TM-18 truck (front, 36 inch wheels) and TM-23 truck (rear, 33 inch wheels).
I am planning to use these sideframes on an ATSF M-160 model (early version) to be released in the future.

I also used these chassis/trucks/sideframes to remotor/scratchbuild a Bachmann ATSF M-183 doodlebug. Using 2 shells the model now has the correct length and window/door arrangement. The roof over the engine compartment was modified to look like the prototype.
I used half the chassis of both TM-18 and TM-23, using styrene sheet to strengthen the splice and bring the chassis to the correct length and width. I had to sacrifice the rear truck drive (wheels turning in opposite direction) but wanted/needed the correct wheel size, axle spacing and electrical pickup. I lowered the motor as much as possible to accommodate the decoder and powerxtender.
The decoder is a Digitrax SDXN136PS with a PS108-2 powerxtender attached.
John Mcmasters (thanks for all your good work) has a nice M-190 doodlebug sound file, which is easy to install.
A lead weight over the front truck gives ample traction to pull quite a few cars - as per prototype - and the running charistics and power pickup are excellent now.
