Franck,

Beautifull weathering.
If I see these pictures, then I have a long way to go to achieve this.

Beautiful weathering very realistic.  But I will admit real or not that seat could have some real drawbacks.
Thanks for the pictures and explanation.

Thanks for those, Franck!

Marty, I got my Fordson from Danbury MInt. Don't know if it is still available, but I have seen them on Ebay.

THere are many Fordson based locos out there. (plus that Death Valley Monorail!)

The loco is a 2ft 6in gauge 1932-vintage Hudson Go-Go, one of three surviving. English modeller Jeremy Tilston <jeremy@jtilston.wanadoo.co.uk> used to sell an excellent set of 1:13.7-scale drawings on CD as Vol 2 No 2 of his Industrial Narrow Gauge Illustrated series. Unfortunately, he stopped producing new releases a couple of years ago to devote his time to the Moseley museum magazine. I don't know if he's still prepared to burn new copies. Mike Decker used to sell them in the USA, but, again, I don't know if he's still in the retailing business.

Marty, you probably know of the Bill Roy Fordson (model F), but there is also a Fordson N made by I think The Model Company in 1/43. The tractor in this loco is a Model N, though the F would work perfectly well.

Hmmm...if you cross a Hudson Go-Go, with a Japanese Ha-Go, you would have a Hudson Ha Go-Go.

Hi Marty,

No it's not the original size images! But I can send the original images if you want  Wink

There is a Fordson F in 1:32 scale, made by Tekno Bygg, from Sweden :

http://wb616757.bahnhofbredband.se/agricult.htm

About the Hudson Go-Go, I found this on Wikipedia : "When the Fordson petrol tractor became widely available in the 1920?s Hudsons adapted this unit to make a simple locomotive. The locomotive used a four wheeled cast chassis to which a roller chain drive connected to the tractor axle. The tractor gearbox had three forward speeds but only one reverse gear, which clearly was a limitation for a locomotive that has to operate bi-directionally. Only a few of these machines were constructed but fortunately a 2-foot (0.61 m) gauge, 1928 model is preserved at the Armley Mills Industrial Museum, Leeds." There are also a model preserved at the Amberley Museum...

Great info guys! Fun stuff. Thanks for the link Franck.

I have Bills 1/48 kit (unless I tossed it on my On30 purge  Undecided)

The 1/32 diecast looks tempting.....might work OK for the Hudson loco in 1/35, since most of the fordson is hidden to some degree. I bet if somone made some masters for the Husdon frame (which would be easy to cast in resin), a couple of people might be interested in one. The limited run casting might be a conversation to take up with Jerry Kitts.  Of course we would have to talk Franck into making several sets of all the brass PE parts for the the cab and bonnet  Grin Grin Grin.


Chuck:  Ahhh.... the reclusive Fordson "Ha-Go-Go"....sort of something like this  Wink Grin Grin
