Empire Mine Locomotive

Just completed a little something for myself for a change. One of my favorite type of locos-Battery mining locos. The model was based on plans in the May-June 2000 Gazette.

The structure in the Diorama was based on a number of different sources.

The loco is powered by one of the old power trucks from the early Bachman 44 tonners. The shaft timber car started as a left over frame from a Bachman Side dump car.  And WOW! its only been in service long enough to get a few scratches, not a sign of rust!
