This week’s post will be short as I just want to give you a look at what arrived in the mail today from Shapeways.
The large spikes at the top are exactly that; spikes to repair a track system for a wooden toy train. The assembly below contains lots of gears, axels, a drive shaft and a set of drive shaft couplings. These are to repair several locomotives such as the N scale Doodlebug from last week’s post, an N scale Minitrix diesel, an N Gauge Dapol Britannia and a HO scale Samhongsa brass locomotive.
After the parts are tested I’ll share the outcomes with you, but for tonight it’s back to the workbench, as some unexpected jobs have come up. Next week I’ll have a review of a new product I found that was a tremendous help in upgrading some older steam engines to DCC sound.
