It says the shell fits a ATLAS 8-40.I want to know 8-40 what. ATLAS makes both the 4 and 6 axle versions but I don't know what the LRV uses 4 or 6 axles.

I don't know about the LRV, the LRC is a four axle model.

I too was confused, because Kato already makes LRVs (Portram, articulated, with three 2-axle trucks).

Um...Hello QWERTY detectives... the V and C are right next to each other...  It's a spelling error, not rocket science.

Yet it is funny that both versions of the acronym are valid, but for totally different rail vehicle.

That loco shell looks awfully long for a 8-40B chassis.I wonder what kind of mods he is talking about.

These are 'tiny' locos compared to the big diesels out there, the 8-40B drive should fit just fine.

I'm sitting in an VIA LRC coach right now doing about 85 mph trying make up time on Train 62 as we head to Montreal.... Light - yes Rapid - yes Comfortable - um.......
Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

I'm sure what Pud meant to say was that he's busy working on an Ontario only CPR D10 model  :trollface:
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.
