Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
No, that’s not a typo for coaching stock, the motive power department’s staff have been eying up number 8 from the Ravenglass and Windermere. The Tri-ang body on this was originally intended for conversion to On30 but I couldn’t be bothered at the time so took the easier route of adapting it for 55n3. However, another beefy diesel would be useful on the FCPyF, the R&W can have one of the FCPyF’s smaller locos in exchange.
With that in mind I have ordered a kit cab to do the job. When rebuilt the diesel will carry the number 62 and share freight train duties with 61.
As the cab is designed for a different OO scale donor I will need to make some minor alterations, ideally I’d like it to be mounted quite low, with the base of the kit level with the bottom of the bodywork but it might end up a bit higher, depending upon how much surgery is involved and how the cab windows match the height of the Tri-ang bonnet.
