Retro Herbie Posted April 27, 2012 Share Posted April 27, 2012 About six years ago myself and a mate were having a coversation about how difficult it would be to build a big 071/111 loco, one big enough to pull passengers. After plenty of discussion we decided on one about 9ft long, electric powered, four motors, lights, airhorns, air brakes with brakes also charging the batteries when they are applied - oh and fitted with a fully functioning sound card. We reckoned as time allow we'd build two, one would be 111 in 1980s livery and 112 in current livery. Heres a few pics of the build process, everything was built from scratch, 111s windows were all hand cut and filed but it was such a hideous task we laser cut 112s Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
