3D Printed narrow gauge locomotives and railcars 

Started with 1/35th scale WW1 locos and wagons, and on request these designs have been re-sized to other scales from Z to SM32

Other narrow gauge items added

Description Model Scales

60cm Gauge

   
Bondy Locotracteur type A5 cv no941


narrow gauge loco built by Bondy in France. 600mm gauge. One preserved at Ciry-le-Noble in Saxone-et-Loire.
Requires chassis,wheels etc
Decauville Mallet 0440T loco(Paris 1889)


Open cabbed version built and used at Paris Exhibition 1889. Subsequently many sold to French and colonial railways, others built with enclosed cab. 
        
     
Dick Kerr petrol electric narrow gauge loco

Ordered by the War Department in November 1916 for use on the 600mm railways being built . As built they were intended to be able to run powered by a 45hp petrol engine linked to generator and motor unit and also by picking, via trolley poles, traction current from overhead wires.

One hundred were ordered from Dick Kerr Ltd and another hundred from British Westinghouse. 
The plan to use electric pickup was never followed through, but the locos could be used as mobile generating plants. 


Requires chassis and finishing

Requires chassis and finishing
20hp Simplex  

( 60cm gauge)

The small 20hp Simplex loco was used a lot in WW1, and developed into one of the most common narrow gauge locos used in industry. The original WW1 version had small variations, and quite often was modified after the war.

Upgraded model design

       
40hp Protected Simplex

 (60cm gauge)

The classic British WW1 narrow gauge loco. This model has been designed using various drawings and photos. I prefer to capture the spirit of a model rather than being spot on accurate. In any case the real locos varied and were at the mercy of the war machine.

     
40hp Armoured Simplex

 (60cm gauge)

The classic British WW1 narrow gauge loco. This is the fully armoured version, which was not built in large quantities.

    
40hp Protected Simplex with doors open on one side

 (60cm gauge)

 

     
40hp Protected Simplex with doors open on both sides

 (60cm gauge)

      
40hp Protected Simplex with no doors

 (60cm gauge)

   
40hp Open Simplex 

(60cm gauge)

     
  Baseplate for 40hp Simplex to fit Lima motor bogie or similar
  Baseplate for 40hp Simplex for Tenshodo or similar motor bogie
  Interior for 40hp Simplex, only for versions without doors or doors open and interior visible
Decauville 060T with closed cab

(60cm gauge)

A Classic WW1 steam loco. This is the original Decauville 8 ton loco, I think also known as a Progress class. Version with fully closed cab.

 
Decauville 060T with open cab

(60cm gauge)

 

 
Kerr Stuart Joffre 060T

(60cm gauge)

A Classic WW1 steam loco. This is the 9 ton Kerr Stuart version of the Decauville 8 ton loco.

 
Pechot Bourdon 0440T

(60cm gauge)

One of the classic French locos from WW1. Initially used to supply military fortifications, they were later used in the clear up operation.

   
'Brigade' 080T

(60cm gauge)

The classic German steam loco from WW1. A big loco. Used in industry after the war.

Crochat i/c loco

(60cm gauge)

One of the French petrol locos from WW1. A big beast.

   
Schneider i/c loco

(60cm gauge)

French WW1 petrol shunter

   
Deutz i/c loco

(60cm gauge)

One of the small petrol locos built by Germany in WW1.some were captured by the allies and photos show them with British troops.

    
Baldwin 0-6-0-saddle tank loco 

Supplied to the French Government in 1914. A standard Baldwin design, primarily for forestry work, and running off wood, not coal. As a result not very successful on lightweight WW1 track, burning coal brickettes. 

Requires chassis,wheels etc
      
Baldwin 50hp gas mechanical loco

Supplied to the French and American military in WW1. After the war many were used by industrrial and light railways. Some were also conveted into standard gauge locos. Many narrow gauge and at least one standard gauge loco are preserved in working order. 

Requires chassis,wheels etc

   
Decauville16ton 0660 Mallet

(60cm gauge)

The largest of the Decauville narrow gauge locos, the Mallet built for use in Morocco 
 requires chassis

   
C2 080 steam loco

Probably the most numerous class of steam loco, based on East European prototype and exported to China where it was copied and built in large numbers. Used till recently on industrial and passenger narrow gauge, often looking in a worse condition than scrapped locos!

 

   
     
     

50cm Gauge

   
Crochat SL6 50 

One of the unusual 50cm gauge locos, built at end of WW1, but then found work in south of France, then preserved on CF de Tarn.

    
Miniature and other gauges    

Miniature 20hp simplex 

A modified version of the 1/35th scale Simplex, but with a bigger seat and other small mods to make it suitable for 1/24th scale. Should fit on Kato N gauge chassis, making it G9 representing a miniature railway version. As it is still same size underneath, it should also be possible to fit a small OO/HO Spud moto bogie for Gn15.

Other versions in different scales, eg 1`/32 scale version based on 1/43rd scale model, to run on 9mm gauge.

Various narrow gauges    

Wickham Trolley

The Wickham trolley was a railway engineering personnel carrier, to run on standard gauge and narrow gauge (often the same ones) .


Requires chassis and finishing

Versions with and without roof, so can be modeled open, or with a lightweight roof

 

Details of models available

De Dion Bouton automotrice/railcar type KG3

 

One of a batch of railcars produced for a number of French narrow gauge railways in late 1920. They were single ended and had an integral turntable mechanism which could be lowered and used to turn the railcar.

This version was one of 4 supplied to the 1050mm gauge Hedjaz railway in Siria. They were slightly wider than the KG version and had wooden sides.

One was still running in 2007, but current situation not known.Based on drawings by Vincent Lepais. Modifications including roof mounted radiator were added at some time.

Requires chassis and finishing

 
De Dion Bouton remorque/trailer type LJ for KG3 railcar
