This kit is for an N Scale Alco C-628\C-630 dummy chassis to be used with an Atlas Alco C-628\C-630 shell and fuel tank.
This kit is ideal if you have used the chassis mechanism for a DT6-6-2000, RT-624 or other project and you now have a spare C-628\C-630 shell.
The kit contains the main chassis, trucks and bolster pins.
The C-628\C-630 dummy will require 6 Fox Vally 36″ metal wheel sets (FVM3611) which are not included. Microtrains 36″ plastic wheelsets will also work.
An addition to the kit is a Circuit Board Mount that will hold the original lighting board in the correct place for the lights.
The kits are available here.
This kit is printed in Shapeways’ Frosted Ultra Detail material which will require cleaning upon delivery, please see my FAQs for more information.
Power pickups can be added to the kit to power the circuit board and lights in the Atlas shell if required.
Here is an example of a C-628\C-630 dummy truck with power pickups. Further details of how to make the power pickups can be found here.
