Zephyr

Post by sjrashid »

Greetings Yinz from Pittsburgh. I've just gotten into t gauge and discovered I can print some pretty nice quality prints on Shapeways. Attached are a couple photos of the Pioneer zephyr that I just finished. I have it available on Shapeways if anyone is interested. I had to make some modifications to the chassis to get the train to work with it's unique bogie layout, but all in all I'm pretty happy with it. I plan on dropping more american trains and a huge variety of rail cars onto my site in the near future.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Your rolling stock looks very impressive...and I do like the shared bogie arrangement it looks as if you've successfully created.

Just a point....your photos will look more presentable if you were to follow the photo guidelines here: http://www.talkingtgauge.net/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=89 They'd actually show rather than be as links...

Great. Thanks for the info. This is the first blog I've been on. I have several more models I'm working on as well. I'll post them as I finish them :)

Have been tied up for a while and haven't had a chance to get back to making more locos. I will say though that this zephyr was the coolest one I have made to date. the reduced number of bogies in the zephyr made for a very smooth riding train.
