Atheran Huslter Drive Mod-1

I'm going to modify three Atheran Hustler locomotives. Two will be used to power the Rotary Plow.
I building one set as a A and B unit. The third will have a complete different drive.

This will be the first engine that will be modified.

The original rubber band drive. I have
a project in mind for this chassis.

First a new frame needs to be made
that will hold the motor and gearing.

Checking for fit of the brass pieces.

The parts are held together with flathead 2-56 screws.

Test fit of assembled brass chassis.

I'm using an SD-40 truck with the worm gear removed.

The middle was widened for the truck to fit. The
brass pieces were soldered together for one solid block.

Another view of the chassis.
