O scale “O” class – down to Bronte for a swim. I’m thinking of a 2 car set.
I think your models are great.
I’ve noticed that your W2 class tram dimensions are a bit out though. The destination box and wayfare are too narrow as well as the apron which is too elongated. I’m only suggesting you consult a third eye, as the types of people who buy these modals will notice and it will reflect poorly on the quality and accuracy of the collection.
Thank you for your comment. You will be pleased to know I’m planning to re-do the front of this model. I have already created a much more accurate front on the O scale version of this model which will be available very soon. In the final testing phase.
You may increase your L/P class tram sales if you advertise it as a Sydney and Newcastle L/P tram. Certainly it would do no harm.
The O class in HO looks great, I am certain that there is not enough roof/gutter overhang at the drivers cabs. The E’s need to have a bow in their bodies,they’re too straight for that colour scheme; other than that they are good looking models.I am waiting to see you do the R/R1,and have an interesting concept for an mech where you don’t see the motor inside the tram.
Hi there, just wondering when your B2 class tram will be available?
Visitng your site for the first time. I’m a trolley modeler and am inquiring about a San Francisco F-Line car featured in the March, 2014 Trolleyville Times built by Bruce Battles. I’d like to build this car and would like to know how to find the necessary parts and drive system. It sounded like this was a special run, but if the shell and other detail parts are available, please advise how to proceed. Thanks…
That was a model I produced several years ago at the behest of my old mate Bruce Battles but, it was nothing to do with our current 3D models as it was a cast resin model. They sold poorly and when the moulds wore out, they were thrown away as I don’t intend to go back into resin casting! I gave all the brass parts to Bruce and his brother Bob, you might ask Bruce if has some spare he would part with. As for a drive, I can highly recommend the excellent Bullant drives from Hollywood foundry.
Hey How much is the P class sydney tram
Please follw the links on the website to the Shapeways site, all pricing is there.
Could you provide an estimated total cost for a Sydney O Class Tram, including the power components and all fittings?
just follow the links in either O scale or HO (which ever scale you chose) and the Shapeways site has the pricing for you as that is where you purchase it. As for fittings, if into HO, I suggest contacting Hollywood Foundry for one of their excellent drives. Unfortunately, I am not aware of any available HO trolley poles at this stage though I am sure there are some out there.
Tһanks for sharing your thoughts аЬout five. Regards
Hi I am looking for some HO scale trolley poles. are they available and if so what price will they be,also what is the the procedure for purchasing them. regards Kevin
We only produce the body kits, the poles and power units have to be sourced from elsewhere. I am not aware at this time of any HO trolley poles.
I would be interested in the upcoming FM (or 400 class) Brisbane tram, having had many rides on these in my childhood.
My own favourite tram of all time, all sub variants of the Brisbane FM from 400 through 554. In HO one type is available on the site now but I need to check with Joe to see if he would be willing to make the other versions. It is unlikely we do them in O scale as they are already available from SPTC.
Joe and Greg-I always enjoy looking at your offerings. Finishing my Chicago Odd 17 is moving up in my queue, as soon as I complete my layout extension and the associated scenery. The H&F car is a proud part of my fleet, admired by all my visitors.
NOW, my semi-annual plea for you to consider the HO version of the Baltimore semi-convertible that you did so beautifully in O scale :-). If that one happens, the order in the queue changes drastically!
Off to buy our Christmas tree-on this side of the planet, a winter ritual.
You have not been forgotten, the Baltimore car is on the list but Joe also has a number of projects in the queue and it has to take it’s turn but he assures me it WILL happen. By the way, thanks for the kudos on the O scale version, that was one of my own casting kits I did several years ago, was my best selling model!!
