Re: [7mmnga] Re: Locomotive Chassis Construction
- I too like to see the correct chassis on a locomotive and outside frames
with cranks to me look much more interesting than just the wheels.
The Sierra Leone Hunslet was originally produced for Merlin Models, I think,
but was subsequently produced by Vulcan with the correct outside frames. I
think that it has now been absorbed into the ABS range so it may appear from
Wrightlines at some point.
