Built by member, Alex West over the past two years.
The model is a 7 1/4″ scale model of Hunslet’s latest shunting locomotive designated DH6OC and the prototype for their new series. Built to 1/10th scale for 7 1/4″ but adaptable to 5″ as a narrow gauge engine as well by using a central square section axle system so that it he can test/run it on his 5″ gauge track. Alex’s intention after completion and testing is to write up the building processes, drawings etc and try to get them published either as articles or/and in book form but this is going to take another couple of years or so. Drawings and 136 pages of text are still in the sketch and long hand format at the moment.
