"...The people called it 'Achenbach's Mühle'"

Let me see if I got this right: In America that would be "Achin' Back's mule", right? Well, that makes perfect sense. Why carry it all yourself if you can get a mule to help? Ol' Achin' Back was no fool.

  I have started a 1:5 scale model of the module I will build. Particullary the construction. 
  Unfortunately the batteries of my camera are flat so photo's will follow soon.
  The layout of the module has been changed slightly to accentuate the rural character.

  The O&K MD2 loco by Mark Hesketh has arrived.  I am impressed by the crisp etching.
  I have to get my soldering skills out of the cupboard as I haven't used it for a very very long time.
  This loco will receive a chassis with RC from Bernard.

What does a O& K MD 2 look like? is it a Mallet? or industrial locomotive? Who Is Mark Hesketh ?
excuse my ignorance, but living here in the states I am kinda out of touch with 1/35 modelers and services, since I'm building a 1/32 layout I can use all the information I can get Thanks

 Here the website of Mark Hesketh

 http://heskethscalemodels.com/ourshop/cat_745010-Locomotives.html

 O&K MD2 is a small "feldbahn " loco , similar to the small loco's built by Marc.

The beauty of this concept is that the "layout" could be set up in a number of different permutations , giving a great deal of flexibility on how it looks ...................................... there will be no attempt to unify the modules by using the same scenic materials.

Which leaves Nick free to build what he likes best:



All you have to do is imagine the dear little trains running behind this masterpiece.

Thanks Jacq!

Nice loco.

For 145 euros I would have sold you my contraption....oh that's right...you want one that runs  Grin

Alas  Gill, wpuld send you my 1/32 one, but it is of no use to you, as it runs on HO gauge track. Grin

  The rails will be code 83 with a height  of 2,1 mm. This is 0,1mm out from standard S10 rail used on " mainlines"
  Sleepers will be 5,0 x 3,0 mm wood  or  steel as 3d printed by Daniel.
  For info: http://www.feldbahn.de/ model tables

  The O&K body is ready and I am waiting for the Chassis to arrive. photo's in daylight tomorrow.
  
  Coming weekend I will attend the Euromodelbouw in Genk. In the same weekend there is RAMMA in Sedan and SMF Challenge in Veldhoven.
  As some repairs are needed on the mill layout, most modeling time coming days will be spend on these repairs.

It has too many clamps and not enough steering wheels. How can anyone possibly drive it? -- Russ
