My next model project...N Gauge Steam Trams!

Very Happy

index.php?t=getfile&id=6549&private=0

Trams just take push in wheels and the powered bogie fits into the 'toast rack' passenger car.

I started out modelling for white detail, but then ended up printing in WSF as the model probably isn't cleanable otherwise. Couplers are a slightly modified standard design and should just work as normal.

Nice! So if I understand you correctly you'll be using standard parts for the wheels and engine? I'd love to see a video of that when you receive the parts.

Yep, that's correct. I'm using Kato parts for this N gauge model. (The wheels and motor bogies are in-front of my keyboard currently)
I'll probably look into Bullants for any HO/TT/HOe stuff.

The logic behind the integrated coupling is a combination of simplicity and aesthetics. It also keeps it standard if someone wishes to use other N gauge gear.

My plan is to eventually take requests for speciality items, rollingstock, point levers, signals, engines etc. At the moment I'm just experementing with trams.
Very Happy
