Title: The Twins
Post by: Bernd on August 19, 2021, 09:03:23 AM
Here's a project I started and actually finished. These engines were built as a tribute challenge to a forum member of the Railroad Line Forum back in 9-16-2016, over 5 years ago.

I've decided to finally put up the construction build on my website of these two boxcabs for wider information distribution
amongst the model railroading community. The idea of building a four axle boxcab in HOn2 actually stems from the fact I was interested in On2. I built two On2 boxcabs using a set of DD40 trucks. After I decided to just stick with HO and start building a layout that contained
three gauges, Standard gauge, HOn3, and HOn2. The HOn2 will be the quarry line that I have started to build. Needing something to power those dump cars brought up this design for motive power.

Here's a link to that page. I still need to add more to the site on this build. http://www.kingstonemodelworks.com/TheTwins.html (http://www.kingstonemodelworks.com/TheTwins.html)

I have and my therapist said I'm making progress.  :-\

The names are of the modeler (Bill) and his wife (Anita).

@Ray,

Thanks Ray.

Isn't the name of the box cab on the right the nickname of our fearless leader?
Headed for the corner with a cooler full of snacks,ice, and adult beverages!

If we get to use Nick's corner there is a pizza oven, refrigerator, comfortable chairs, and a flat screen TV.

The problem isn't his getting in; it's getting out. Nick is such a young rascal that he's had to spend decades in the corner. I've even heard he stashed a bunch of beautiful girls in thong bikinis there, each (of course) eager to cater to his every whim. Maybe he'll explain it to you. I find the whole matter far too embarrassing. -- Russ

True dat.... but here in the darkside corner we have cookies and whisky too. And, one of those thong-clad girls said she would do anything I wanted for 50 bucks, so I had her repaint the kitchen.  ::)

I need to rent me one of those thong clad women to do my kitchen or my bed room.  :-\

I'm starting to like being told to go to the corner.  8)

See what you started Russ.  ;D
