Home Up Out on the Rails Modeling Projects RxR Radio

These are the results of taking the Accucraft 0-4-0 Ruby from Kit form and altering it, sometimes called "kit bashing" into the 0-4-0-2T locomotive pictured second, affectionately known as "Plum Loco".


The first link below will take you to my builder logs at showing the planning and building processes I used to "bash this kit into "Plum Loco". The remaining links cover problem solving, additional modifications and the carrying case for transporting the locomotive
