might be able to obtain a engine out of an old Datsun 1*0 car thats currently undrivable that i have seen
I think there was a DL article in AMRM a few years back so you could use those plans, and scale them up to your prefered scale.
Unfortunately over the time we've had it hanging in the workshop, it has faded considerably so we are in need of a new one ourselves. However if you write to EDI Rail's HEad office, or even their facility closest to you, explain to them what you are going to do with them, ie build a scale model of one of their loco's etc, they have been quite obliging to us in the past. your best bet is to ask them for a copy of the General arrangement, Bogie arrangement and colour scheme drawings. The bogie arrangements are a fairly large scale, about 1" = 1' i think. the colour scheme drawing will help you get the paint job and the lining right and the GA drawing should give you any other info you need.
Probably be AN green and Yellow, but NR's Charcoal and Orange (as applied to the C's in melbourne) is being looked at as well, depends what i feel like putting in the spray gun at the time i do the painting.
I was going to do the Charcoal and Orange livery as per DL41 so we could have a AN green/yellow and NR Charcoal/Orange in a few years time
EDI have recieved my email and forwarded it onto the concern department and as they are reasonably busy, it may take a while for a response but thats ok with me
email address you want is:
just explain what you are doing and don't expect a immediate response but hopefully they should be able to hook you up
and i may have some assistance also from a mate who is an engineer and he's keen to do something in the order of Petrol/Diesel - Hydraulic. he's also looking at price's for things like pumps and stuff.
so waiting on plans but chomping at the bit to get started as well
