Chris Ward Side Tank Loco

Posted by Alan on 25th June 2012 in 0165, Alan's Railway |

Whilst at SWING in May, I got chatting to Chris Ward of C W Railways about his 3D printed loco bodies. There’s a couple I like but, after cajoling and barracking from some of my fellow Surrey Area Group members, I put my name down for a Side Tank Steam Loco with some modifications.

0-16.5-Side Tank

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed that the spectacle plates are neither completely round nor square cornered.

This is a customisation that I specifically requested from Chris which was easily accomodated as a result of the production process.

I’ve also opted for Kadee coupler slots and there’s space in the loco body for a decoder.

I’m presently following Chris’ advice to burnish out the striae created by the printing process. I’m talking to Stephen Fulljames for the loco name plate and there’s a Smokey Joe chassis in the post, care of eBay. More news as it breaks.
