HOn30" Whitcomb Switcher

This kit uses the N-Scale Bachmann Dockside 0-4-0 switcher for a drive mechanism (not included). The kit features a one-piece cab and hood assembly, easy to assemble parts, and a series of weights to improve balance and pulling power. Detailed instructions for assembly are included. The kit is undecorated, and the suggested list price is $44.95 U.S. See you dealer for ordering information. Master made by Barry McClelland. Here is a review of this fine kit from the "009 News", a newsletter published by the 009 Society:

"The first is their "Side Rod Gas Mechanical Locomotive". The kit is made in black epoxy and requires some cleaning of flash, and the opening out of windows. It is very easy to assemble, and cast weights are provided to improve the running of the Bachmann 0-4-0 chassis. The modification to the chassis is very simple, removing the cylinders and leaving the side rods in place. All of this is covered in the very complete instructions. I enjoyed making this most unusual looking diesel." - Peter Bartlett
