FED 4-4-0 by NWSL, re-powered by Bob Eckerfield of Missouri City, Texas

Bob Eckerfield of Missouri City, Texas re-powered this FED 4-4-0 by NWSL. Bob converted the model from tender drive to main wheel drive using a BullAnt.

This shot shows the BullAnt mounted in the bottom of the firebox area. Bob used the original wheels, turning up bushes to mate the 2mm BullAnt axles to the 3mm wheels.

Here is the model disassembled before painting. Bob says that after 30 minutes of running-in, the drive is running smoothly. His next project is a Red Ball HOn3 Mallett.
