Ruston Proctor narrow gauge loco (Deutz) - Waltham Abbey Gun Powder Mills
Permalink   


I have some photos of the Ruston Proctor loco at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.

The info board states that it is a 'direct copy of a German design' except for the engine, I haven't seen a Deutz quite the same in detail, can any of our railway experts confirm that it is a 'direct copy'?

Thanking you in anticipation,

Chris

Hi Chris,

It surely looks like a copy of the Deutz Benzollok. There were many different versions of the Deutz. Enclosed you will find my drawings of the 12 hp C XXII F version.

With kind regards,

-Arie.

Thanks for posting the drawing Arie, the Ruston certainly looks to be derived from the Deutz

Hi Chris,

You're welcome... smile Enclosed you will find some pictures of different versions of the Deutz. I also did some colouring in. The colours given for German Narrow Gauge locomotives is green or light grey as overal colour, with the corner pieces painted black. The wheels are possibly red. The grafiti is of my own making... smile

With kind regards,

-Arie.

Hi Chris,

 

      Actually, they are American troops during the push through the Argonne.  Here is another link with more plans for Duetz, Montania and Obersol Benzollokomotiven...

Cheers - is it the German version or the UK home front one? As well as modelling the theatres of war i'm quite interested in the possibility of doing UK home front models too... just need some female munitions workers and a ton of shells!

My 1/76 Deutz Lokomotive 12 Pf C XII is a work in progress. The chassis is complete. But I messed up the test etch for the body. The attached photo shows all I could salvage from the etch (I had not printed a layer containing the tags attaching the half etch parts to the fret). I will send for another test etch when I've finished the WD L Type etch. Which will be shortly...

Regards
