Custom Locomotives in kit or RTR form



1/29 scale Baldwin 'Sharknose' B-units

We can also produce custom models to order, usually designed to use existing 45mm running gear. In principle almost any prototype is possible, though the time and labour involved usually means that true one-off commissions are extremely costly. Normal batches would typically be from 5 units upwards to spread development cost. Pictures show a batch of Baldwin 'Shark' freight units, supplied as easily assembled kits complete with a metal-cored chassis designed to accept Aristocraft trucks.

The lower picture shows the ends of two units in final detailing, dimensionally identical shells being completed to represent different years' production, PRR DRS15-4-4 phase3 on the left, and NYC RF16 phase2 on the right.
