Brisbane Drop Centre Tram – HO

model brisbane tram

Model of a Brisbane Drop Centre Tram. Designed to fit Maximum traction trucks by BEC. Poles and bogies not included.

Model Kit Components:

 3D Printed Model – You can find details on how to order the 3D printed body from shapeways by clicking the following links:

Power Mechanism – The tram has been designed to fit with the BEC maximum traction trucks. The body width and length have been slightly increased (only a fraction) to ensure comfortable fit and bogie swivel on these trucks.

MEMT maximum traction bogies have a 9mm diameter larger driven wheel and a 7mm diameter smaller trailing wheel. You can order these trucks here: http://www.bec-kits.co.uk/Trucks/bogies.htm

As these trucks are made to order you should let them know that the distance between the two bogie centres is 8 cm. The trucks arrive pre-wired together.

Trolley Poles – I use trolley poles supplied by Brian Weisman (Jason’s Brass Poles). His service is excellent and ships to Australia quite fast. Send him an email at brianweisman@hotmail.com and ask for suitable HO trolley poles for your model. They are well priced too.
