Locomotive Transportation
« on: September 07, 2019, 01:32:27 PM »
Hi having watched Train Truckers last it got me thinking. Oxford Diecast have an OO low loader, but I can't find an 1:148 scale one that might work to mount a broken/unpowered locomotive being delivered to my heritage layout. Any ideas?

I have a good friend who is an expert at scratch building, he's planning to make a small one for the steam museum loco depot I'm building.  He was responsible for the large abnormal load model on the German modular layout at TINGS at couple of years ago, so this will be a doddle  :D (I did the lights for ALE :-)

From N-Club International's Galery pages:




How about this offering from DM-Toys, for a transporting a small shunter?

Thanks guy, I saw the Scania as an option but thought it might sit a little bit too high, without seeing it in the metal I wasn’t sure. The DM toys looks to be an option although not sure if the 1:160 might make it look too small, I must dig out out my old Wiking bus and see how it looks. I loved that abnormal load s TINGS, so much to look at in that little diorama.

Have you looked at the B-T / Base Toys products ?
There are a couple of articulated lorries with low trailers - possibly use as a basis for a custom vehicle ?
The Pickfords Commer Low Loader might be worth a look.
Not sure which era you are modelling.

Ive not come across B-T models, they look to be nice models. I'm gathering stock and data for a heritage railway so I'm looking at relatively modern vehicles although I guess they have a relatively long life.
