This was about a nine month build...I wanted to make a Feldbahn style diesel locomotive similar to the Feldbahn trains still in use in Europe...Most of the Feldbahn style trains were narrow gauge, [ my railroad is 12 inch gauge]. There is another video of some of the construction of this engine in its earlier stages on my channel....I wanted to capture the slow diesel sound, so I added some flywheel weight so the engine will run a little slower with a load...so far its satisfactory, and the straight pipe seems to give it a good sound....
