H0n30 0-4-0 Porter

The chassis is from a Backwoods Miniatures Bagnall. Actually an 009 (00 1:76 scale, 9 mm gauge) kit for only 40.00 GBP, available direct from the manufacturer. The chassis kit includes some etched nickel-silver parts (mainframe, rods, crosshead, etc.) motor (Mashima), wheels and gears. It is a superb slow runner due the 54:1 gear ratio. The superstructure is cannibalized from a Joe Works 0-4-0 Porter. I used 2 saddletanks for my new Porter (the second saddletank came from a Joe Works RGS 0-6-0T). The Joe Works locomotives have never worked reliable.

If you would like to use also a Backwoods Miniatures Bagnall chassis for your locmotive projects, here are some measurements. The Baldwin 2-4-2T would be also good starting point for a conversion.

A Backwoods kit looks like this (Baldwin 2-4-2T and K1 Garrat):
