Wish revolution would stop there costing me a fortune ! First pendolonos, then I have 29 of the 35ton tanks on the way, then there’s the cargo wagons I need to order probably Perrier plus at least a triple cargo wagon, hoa at some point no doubt be a good 10 units to make a decent rake and now I will need a rake of sturgeons....

They are OO, and I found the picture here

Salmon' - Bogie Rail Mounted Crane Wagon model

https://www.hamodels.net/cranes-generator-for-salmon-rail-wagon.html



I suspect one could scratch build a pair in N from the pictures? H section, rod, and base dimensions from the Sturgeon width??

Pictures here (quoted above)

Two different types of crane (prototype and the Genesis ones). Ben thinks the masters for the NGS cranes are available at CMA and are of the Geismar type which IRC are the most common type on the Sturgeon.

As an aside, I received this first pass render today from a chap that does CAD for me.  Its a long term project for use with NGS Salmons I have been working up to and whether this type of crane was used with Sturgeons I am not sure.  However with a bit more detail added, subject to printing resolution, I'm hoping to get these printed and available through Shapeways.

I have photos of this crane type on Salmons and if anyone has photos of them fitted to Sturgeons, that would be very helpful.  :thumbsup:

NB. I know the generator is back to front  :)

From a bit of research today it appears a valid train would be a set of Salmons with these cranes for rails, combined with Sturgeons with sides for ballast, sleepers and other materials and a class 37 or similar to haul them.

Here are the adjusted drawings ready to try a test print.









NB these are the alternate type from the type that occasionally are available from the NGS.

Off to Shapeways for a first print.

This image is much sharper and is from the Shapeways site.

Hi look forward to these being printed - I will wait until shapeways has a free posting session  as cost of even 10 will be outweighed by UPs charges!
Thanks for effort in creating.

If they print I will put them up in a Shapeways shop.

I'm just eager to see how they come out, I have seven NGS Salmons to build with them  :)

The crane prints have passed checking and are on their way.

I have opened a shop on Shapeways for anyone who wants them

https://www.shapeways.com/shops/snowwolflair

I should be able to put up photos when they arrive early next week.

Roll on the Sturgeons.

With my delivery of Mobil B tankers there was a leaflet promising a discount of £2 on each Sturgeon to previous customers of B tankers (I assume).

thank you, very much appreciated.  :D

It is dated "use by 31st March" so I assume that the ability to order them will be available soon.
