Weighty Matters

Some microscopic progress to report on the KMX tamper this week.

As a 'just in case' measure I've decided to add weight discreetly wherever I can inside the styrene body. The machine won't be required to haul anything on the layout, of course, the idea is that greater mass will help ensure reliable electrical contact between wheel and rail.

Here some pieces of a chopped up scrap whitemetal kit have been glued onto the back of the engine compartment.
