Worsley Works M7.
At long last the chassis was made during our June Dorset Group meeting.
The chassis from Worsley is etched in nickle silver and is a quality etch. The axle holes were opened out with a broach and straw hat bearings soldered in place. the chassis was bentup and a couple of spots of solder applied to keep it all square.Wheels are Markits 16.5 mm drivers available from the Society Shop. The motor, a Mashima 9/16 with 40:1 single stage gearbox is from Branchlines. Power has been applied and all seems to work OK. A session on the rolling road with a good oiling should ensure that it is well run in ready for the bogie and body.
