Our CLC Whitcomb Gets a Little Brother!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
As suggested in our last posting, a second locomotive is under development in our miniature railway shops; a 7-¼” gauge replica of our full-sized 50 ton CLC-Whitcomb diesel-electric switcher. The miniature will use a gasoline engine driving a hydraulic transmission which in turn is used to drive two hydraulic motors, one on each truck. Like on its big brother each motor drives one axle, the second axle is driven by the side rods.
Here we see an historic photo of our full size Whitcomb plus a number of photos of the miniature engine under construction.
