Koltorp - The Mormor loco
This article was published Feb 05, 2017.
Before I start a project I always try to be sure I have all the supplies I need. Well, I started alright, but not enough to continue with the Atlas wagons, so I started another project instead.. Not wise, but the weekend wasn´t over, so what to do.
This prototype did and still do run on the Bödabanan railway on the Öland island east of Sweden. It was made by Zobel germany in 1910 and had an adventures life, but now back in Böda renovated and almost as good as new. It has 600mm gauge and not 20in as my line, but I still thought it to match right in to my wanted atmosphere. The name Mormor is swedish for grandma or mothers mother.
The disassembly of the TT loco and making the cab is as far as I reached today. More next weekend, hopefully better equipped for both this and the Atlas wagons.
Still does not show much, but there will be an article about this one when ready to raise up.
