1882Re: [FS32NGModelrail] Drawings and Photos wanted
- Apr 2, 2001Thanks for your interesting message. But I am curious, if it is not secret: what
is the planned french locomotive for Expométrique The used of a HO chassis is a
good idea for a Decauville but at this scale I think that you must prepare a
tanskit to have correct cylindar and valve distribution.
