Narrow gauge industrial train for 28mm and 1/35 projects
« on: December 14, 2023, 10:16:36 PM »
This whole sub-forum is a great surprise to me, I am not the only one who does these type of models :)

My project was based on a H0 Piko train set, as H0 system is the cheapest, easily available and most widespread system of them all. I simply built new superstructure onto the waggons, keeping their running gear and connectors intact. I was not aiming for one particular type, I tried to keep it generic era-agnostic and fit for both my 28mm sci-fi and  1/35 historical projects, this was possible by using two separate locomotives for the two scales. The trick is that the locomotive is not the locomotive, the bigger, closed car is the real locomotive from technical point of view. This way it is a completely working H0 train model able to run on any standard H0 rail system.
I plan to make bigger locomotives and bigger cars, we will see.

Great work, any rules worked out for them moving or you just going to set them off randomly to freak out your opponents?

Thank you!
In "wargame mode" it does not move on its own, it is a normal vehicle which can move along the rails. In 40k ruleset based games it goes 12" and has 7HP for the locomotive, 5 for the waggons (T9/8 Sv3+/4+). It also has a transport capacity of one squad per waggon. In my 1/35 ruleset it also counts as a vehicle with some transport capacity (smaller as there it is more like a smaller minecart), and also provides cover for those hiding behind it.

I've been working on a 1/35th scale narrow gauge train, here are some details.

Nice looking fireless locomotive.  Sort of engine that would be used around a munitions factory.
