Sorry to resurrect such an old topic, but I can't believe no one else was as blown away by this as I am. What a gorgeous little loco! Any idea what the prototype was? I'm tempted to order one of these and see if I can come up with something half as charming! Thanks for the info and the photos! :)

There has been a lot of discussion about micro chassis for small shunting locos lately, so maybe your resurection is very timely!

Is there any chance of someone quoting the dimensions of this bogie please, such as height, width, wheel diameter and wheelbase?

Also would it be advisable to fit a resistor, if so which one, in order to avoid blowing the motor?

Thanks for the resurrection. A great little loco indeed!

I've recently built the P&D Marsh Sentinel steam shunter on a similarly small chassis. I'll pst some photos on the Facebook page later.

I have the sentinel shunted still to build. What chassis did you use and where did you source it from?

The one I used turned out to be a bit too short a wheel base, it was a TU 7T chassis from Osborns. They do others, although you may be better ordering on eBay as Osborns seem to order these on an as needed basis and I waited several weeks for it to come.

The TGW chassis are usually readily available on eBay from PlazaJapan and similar sellers.  There are quite a few other makes and designs around now.

I've used a couple of the TGW TU 7T units in small 009 locos.  The motor is only 4.5V but it has a high top speed so just keep the controller turned down and it's fine.        One of mine is DCC fitted, but it's not happy.  I've tried resistors but they just run hot and (I think) interfere with the decoder BEMF.   I need to spend some time programming the speed curve etc.  just not got round to it yet.

Beware some of these small chassis are only driven on one axle (as I think was mentioned in an earlier post) and I was rather disappointed with the example I had (a different TGW chassis).  At least the TU 7T is 2 axle drive.
