Comparison DCC Vs Agricultural

Post  highpressure on Sun 10 Oct 2010, 10:16 am

Got the first back wheel finished today and thought people might like to see the difference between the DCC version and batch 1/2 agricultural. Despite the dimensions on the marketing saying they are very sinilar it still looks damn big to me. affraid Embarassed Dont think I'll be pushing that one around on a grass field on my own too often. When we get to the rolling chassis stage it will be interesting to put them side by side.



Have also made good progress on the lining of the belly tank over this weekend and hopefully can post something soon. Very Happy

Doggies and engines

I guess the same holde true with traction engines as it does with puppies - you can get a rough idea of 'fully grown' size by looking at the size of their paws.

Spot the difference

Post  highpressure on Fri 04 Mar 2011, 2:22 pm

So today was a lovely sunny day and I got the SC out to get it ready and clean it up for the steam test next week and I put both of them together. Took a couple of shots to get some idea of size but the camera hasnt really done such agood job as seeing them in the flesh. The DCC is a good 8-9" longer and the wheels are clearly bigger, the tender is a bit shorter on the DCC but fatter and its a good 2-3" wider. The boiler is a good 2" bigger in diameter than my on my SC version so should make a significant difference when steaming for capacity. Looking forward to a new season. Very Happy Very Happy

Great Pics, can you post some more (different views), as I am at least eight months behind your build and it is nice to see the comparisons to the standard 4" scale.

All the best
