[LVLC] The Waycar
The last car to be equipped with Kadees is the waycar. This seemed to be a bit complex first, but finally was easy as the other freight cars as well. I had thoughts while the end sills were different on this car. I removed the nailed-on stir-ups and used a Japan-razor-saw to just cut off the lower portion of the end sills. Afterwards I installed the couplers the same way as on the freight cars. Don’t wonder, I rebuild the car from bogies to 4-wheel when I built the boxcar.
Later on, I switched the 26mm wheelsets by 27.5mm San Valley ones which make the car look much better, even by the small difference in wheel-size. I also installed a break rigging to complete the already existing hand brake wheel.
Now all the cars are ready for airbrush-weathering…
Some may notice that I removed the road numbers. The high 2-digit numbers doesn’t feel right anymore on such a small roster. Maybe I’ll replace them with new 1-digit road numbers during the weathering.
Immer wieder schaue ich mir Deine Bilder an und lese Deine Texte. Bin völlig fasziniert davon obwohl ich überhaupt nichts damit zu tun habe, bin ja H0 – Bahner, 3Schienen-2Leiter-AC.
Aber werden Deine Berichte weiter verfolgen weil es mir gefällt.
