This Meccano build has been a personal challenge as I have always liked the shape of the Bugatti Type 35 having made one as my first Air fix model. I have Taken inspiration from David's, Richard's & Peter's versions. As well as the photos seen here, there are others on the 2020 April Virtual Meeting Page 1
Pacific Tank Locomotive
This is an 0-gauge model of a 4-6-2-wheel arrangement Tank locomotive based loosely on plans published in Meccano magazine of September 1929.
General view of the Meccano clockwork driven 4-6-2 Tank Locomotive
The original plans had the locomotive sitting on an 'O' gauge track with the loco driven by a Meccano clockwork motor. It became apparent during building that with the later version of clockwork motor inside the frame, the model was too wide to sit on an 'O' gauge track, so I build my own track to match the loco.
