Dd Class - Complete

The completed model as D1 634, Phoenix last D for Victorian Railways. The only purchased items other than the chassis were the buffers (SEM), jacks (Kerroby) and couplings (W&T) - all up cost around $120 (and a month's elbow grease!).

Dd Class - Under Construction

Nearly ready for painting, these pictures show the Bachmann 10 wheeler before and after conversion to a Dd, the changes being mostly visible with those sections of the original used being black. Changes not so apparent are the narrowing of the tender, shortening the cab floor length, simplifying the valve gear and replacing the lead bogie wheels with wheels closer to scale.
