You may have noticed the photo I posted of my 1940s truck with the NENG Model T railtruck:
I was putting it back on the shelf when it occurred to me that it had been on the shelf for years, and I didn’t have a layout to use it on. I had a set of Slaters small wheels left over from the Model T and countless larger wheels. Could it become a railtruck?? So I turned it over and unscrewed the back and front axles, and propped it up on a regular back axle and a mockup front.
The front truck looked a bit squashed, and I vaguely remembered seeing a photo of a railcar with one pair of wheels out front. So off came the plastic bumper and with a few clips I had an elongated front truck mockup.
I couldn’t resist posing it with my Model T, and the Bachmann railtruck sitting on my other shelf. It would work better as a standard gauge truck, as the back wheels end up between the frame rails. But no reason a narrow gauge railtruck shouldn’t have outside journals on the back?
Now to figure out if I have any kind of suitable power unit. I don’t think a Faller 3V motor will do.
