Hn30 Climax build

My first locomotive scratchbuild, an HOn30Climax, inspired by a friend's need for deer antlers to put on a locomotive's headlight. Once a made a set from some scrap bits, I had to build a loco for it to go on.

Yeah...weird...I know...please forgive the bad picture, as it was the early days of digital cameras.

I used a Model Power RS15 as the base mechanism...a huge mistake, as it is on of those badly designed, badly executed cheesy drives that can't pull its own shadow, hence its ultimate fate forever chained to a flat car.
