NZR DFT Locomotive Progress

Published by Chris Draper at 5:30 PM under Diesel Locomotives

Had a few days off work and spent it all standing in front of my lathe making axles, bearings and bushes for my six axle locomotive project. Lots still to do to each part, but get a sense of progress putting them all together like this. There are about 25 parts per axle to make before final assembly, and those shown here still require several more maching steps before they will be ready for the paint department.

Video Trip around the Winter Creek

Published by Chris Draper at 5:11 PM under Operating Days | Steam Locomotives

Steve held the video camera just above the cab of his 5" guage Sandy River No 24 for a trip around the line last Saturday. You can watch it here on You Tube

The trip starts at the apex of the bottom loop beside the signal box and does a complete circuit. Watch for glimspes of Grant Alexanders 7.25" No 24 as he waits for access to the single line running section
