History: Hagerstown and Frederick Railway The 88 mile H&F was a typical rural cross country interurban trolley line. Formed in 1913 through the consolidation of several companies, it had a wonderfully scenic route through the central Maryland countryside. The trolleys survived much longer than most other rural lines but, portions were abandoned as early as 1938 and the remaining 18 mile Frederick to Thurmont line where the trolleys met the trains in time honoured fashion ran for the last time in 1954. One of the cars of the 168-172 series cars (upon which our model is based) survives in basic body form on freight trucks, hopefully, one day, she might be restored to operation.
The Model: Our models faithfully follow the prototype as built and, allows you to bring this once quirky, friendly scenic trolley back to life in miniature form.
What’s included in the Kit
The kit includes all the parts required to build a static model for display.
The parts in this kit are all 3D printed in resin.
Also included in the kit are non-functional display trolley poles made up of printed spring base and printed wheel with brass rod for the pole.
A specific adapter floor can be requested at the time of purchase which will allow a suitable drive unit to be installed making the model operable. (This make take a few weeks if the floor hasn’t been designed yet for this model. I’m slowly getting through them all).
Decals and paints are not included but I can direct you to the appropriate local supplier for these.
