|HO scale narrow gauge 25 foot cars [message #52026] Sat, 28 July 2012 13:32 UTC
I'm planning on producing some of the rolling stock of the Ohio River & Western Railway, a 3 foot gauge railroad.They are suitable for both HOn30 and HOn3, there will be versions for both gauges.They are designed to sit on my trucks, available for both gauges.|
The first one available is a flatcar, with or without stakes.
Here are the two versions with stakes,fitted with the appropriate trucks and couplers.
To weight the model I glued some strips of lead between the sills.I used EZ line to make the truss rods.
This is the HOn30 version, painted and fitted with micro-trains 1015 couplers.
There are two small supports for the handbrake wheel at one end.They need to be drilled out to accommodate whatever you use, I used some 0.4mm dia. brass rod.The finished model:
