General Electric U34CH

Unread postby JerryC » Wed Oct 03, 2018 5:07 am

Due to a general disdain for the rigors of maintaining a social media site, our Facebook has been discontinued for the time being. However, by request, the U34CH is still work in progress. It goes slowly, but it goes.

Nice!

Is that a push-pull trainset? Does it come with a cab car?

Oooo!
Why that most certainly appears to be the General Electric U34Ch and Suburban Coach from Pullman-Standard introduced in the 1971 in a Joint Agreement between the New Jersey Department of Transportation and the Erie Lackawanna Railway. And yes, that is a Push-Pull configuration with a Cab Car for the engineer to operate the train in "push" mode! *!greengrin!*

Ahem..

That specifically shown in the photos is a simple "Comet I" coach car. The only thing that is actually "finished" on it are the trucks, as the model is being filled out from the bottom up. The cab-car has not been started yet but is a planned for production.

Splendid! I'm not sure why the dimensions of the Comet I are somewhat awkward when compared to DTG's Shoreliner III and Comet IV models

I cannot speak for DTG's models, but I have detailed schematics for the Comet I's. I am being as faithful with their dimensions as possible.

Comet I cars were awkward looking to begin with. It's just the nature of the beast. Not to mention the top half is still unfinished and not baked yet.
