https://flic.kr/p/8SepV5 | BR65 Drivetrain | By request a peek inside the BR65. This shows the layout of the drivetrain. The motor sits in the front part of the boiler, the battery box fills the rest of the boiler. The blind drivers are on #2 axles and are only held in place by the connecting rods (omitted in this picture).
Its getting closer! New tender, new cab, new smoke deflectors, and more. Its now powered with a bogie in the tender--soon to be converted to DCC (hopefully!) Still lots to do, but I'm looking forward to applying the decals when she's finished.
