PC&N Ry HOn3 4-4-0 "Neskowin"

PC&N Ry HOn3 4-4-0 "Neskowin"

Postby Ross A » Mon Aug 29, 2016 5:32 am

All,

I just finished up my latest project, a reworked FED 4-4-0. She has custom decals by Craig Hoefer and a working bell that Laurie McLean MMR, shared with me on how to animate. Neskowin will be the main passenger engine on the PC&N Ry.

Ross,
Your Neskowin is fantastic! It is an inspiration for my future conversions. I was wondering how you fit in the bell motor? Any chance of a closeup of the inside of the cab?

Thanks for sharing,
John Hall

John,

Thanks for the kind words! If you search YouTube for "Slidevamr" you will find several short clips of her construction and the early bell test.

I have also added a photo.

Ross,
I have only been loosely following Laurie's animation ideas because I thought the FED was too small for an extra motor. Now that I've seen what you did (fantastic!) I want to give it a try on my HOn3 FEDs. Have you written up any instructions or is there a parts list and wiring diagram?

Thank you,
John
