I think I’ve mentioned that thanks to my supportive wife we have pretty trains and trams to run a shelf inside the house. They will somehow complement the Wild West 1890-1910 theme outside. We thought we would run the trams with overhead wire.
Because we are in Oz, and have no dedicated G-scale stores, we picked up catenary from Aussie ebay when we could. Overhead wire was impossible to find until recently, so we had no reason to unbox the catenary poles.
Upon opening the box, we discovered we purchased possibly a first generation catenary system.
I’ve found a diagram of how the LGB is to be assembled., but am unsure how to proceed without damaging the unit. The units appear to be solidly spot welded together. Hence the tram-attic finding!
It’s been suggested I cut into the pole structure and sleeve the cut or break at a joint and solder it together. I have a 3D printer but haven’t come up with anything substantial.
Has as anyone cut through the 56204 and re-soldered or done a more clever approach?
