I once made an SW40PH.
That's one of them!
Over the past couple of days I was thinking (with all the talk of cutting up F units...) of taking an E or F, or an SDP40F, partially cutting out the sides, installing walkways between the cab and rear, and putting a steam locomotive boiler inside, so the whole thing looks like one of those UP veranda turbines. Replace the radiator fans on top with domes, put a big stack on top...
That's what happens when I start thinking...:wideeyes:
While I was posting the SW40PH went up... that thing is such a cutie!
I keep seeing the Coors commercial with the beer can engine ... I wonder if the cans could be managed into a boiler and etc. using a FEF chassis and running gear . kinda like a brass model with no instructions and no preformed parts.
Maybe true in the future, when the world runs short of oil...
Here's two ideas I had. NOTE: slanted nose on first loco and the two grills, section and fan placement on top of second loco....
Cool, im rather encouraged by this.
Also, I apologize for being gone, I have had computer troubles,
How about an F7D?
This is only fictional in North America, because Australia did have one class of double-ended E-units.
I also did know someone who was fantasizing at one point about a double-ended DD40X, and I know Lionel produced a DD40X in Milwaukee Road colours, but it wasn`t in N Scale.
Now that looks great!
