Soldered up

Tram 2

What a cruel enlargement!

The main kit parts were soldered together for speed, and because I needed to test my newly cleaned soldering iron. Fit was pretty good with no significant clean-up required.

On the roof we have a condensing pipe made from brass fixed with the magic C&L 100 degree solder. One mystery is how anyone would fit the traditional N gauge coupling. I assume it would poke out through the cow catcher, there is a support inside for an NEM box. It wouldn't be pretty but then N gauge couplings never are...

You could drill a hole and insert a wire hook that catches a rapido - I've used this on a couple of smaller locos and found it works well and looks much better.
