Our first DC model is a WAP-5!

Engineering is hard. Moreso, at this level and size. But we stuck to our guns and boy oh boy – did we create a scorcher! Evern @TheGuyWhoDoesNotSpeak yelled in glee when he saw our darling take its first rounds on our test track…

I think that this post probably should be scarce on words and big on video – so we aren’t going to say much after this. We are going to say that our model breached the scale speed mark of 240 kmph. Given that the actual Indian Railways WAP-5 can hit 220 kmph, we’d say our model was accurate in more ways than one.

In case you are lost with all that has been going on and all the new terminology being thrown around, do take a look at our 3-part series introducing absolute beginners to the wonderful world of railroad modelling starting here.

And now, on to the videos.

Rail-fanning in India is never going to be the same again…
