Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
I have not been keeping this blog up to date mainly because I have not really been able to do very much to the railway for some time as we have been doing a lot of other things that have taken up my time.
The locomotive stud has been added to with the addition of a LAT locomotive built from a PDF kit.
The kit consists of a 1 piece body with a chassis block that has a few extra pieces bolted on plus an engine block to fill in that big hole.
The body was sanded off as the 3D printing process does leave striping marks behind as the various layers are added one at a time. This does take some time but it is worth doing as it leaves a good surface for the paint to be applied.
The chassis went together very quickly with the side plates bolted on and the engine mount fitted along with the motor itself. Wheels and gears completed the build ready for use
The body and chassis were bolted together to make sure everything fitted and it all looked good.
It doesn't yet run as a loco as I am aiming on creating a battery and control wagon to run with the smaller locos that has not yet been built so the LAT will not be seen running for a while yet.
