L&YR A Class Test Fit

The Bachmann C Class chassis has been suitably modified. The only modification required to fit is to cut the front 3mm off in front of the guard irons and to file off the two protrusions either side of the gearbox. The body fits – more or less – a very small modification will be required to the design at the back. Here it is on the chassis.

For the tender I’m erring towards the sub-frame as the the pin-point bearings holes proved a tight fit (it will be problematic to design the holes much bigger) and difficult to open out in a restricted space. The printed sub-frame is a little flimsy so will be modified. I have also created a fold up etched brass version of this and this is what I’ve used here with a set of Gibson wheels. Through frame bearings have yet to be added so the tender is currently sitting too low.

Finally here’s the tender on the sub-frame showing the wiring loom and drop in top arrangement.
