American Models "S" scale (1/64) freight train converted to run on H0/0n30 tracks of 16.5mm gauge instead of 22mm S gauge.
Michi pressed the wheels to the centres of the axles and ground the engines gearboxes to fit in between the wheels. The train measures 3ft in length.
It was a lucky bid on Ebay Germany that won the never used $350 train for less than 50€!
The diesel engine is one of 22 EMD GP35 that were purchased by Denver & Rio Grande Western between 1964 and 1965.
There is a 50´ steel boxcar and two covered three bay hoppers to complete the freight train.
All cars were weathered with enamels and acrylics.
Scale comparison shot with a heroic 28mm miniature and a truck in 1/64th scale and another with a Bachmann 0n30 1/48th scale steam engine. This photo illustrates how well both scales go together on a gaming table if the narrow gauge Bachmann trains are used as substitutes for standard gauge prototypes. Now the diesel freight train is a narrow gauge one that never existed in reality however.
