We have planned a meeting of the railcars... maybe in September at KS Modelling Days in Stromberg.
I reckon this would have been worth seeing.
I've always liked small railcars - and these ones look great.
Recently, I've been checking the internet - I've been trying to find out about some real railcars, built in the 1930s by Triebwagen und Waggonfabrik Wismar:
The unusual thing about these iconic railcars is that they have engines at both ends - only one is used at a time.
A number of German manufacturers produce models (or kits) - unfortunately, they're all rather expensive. This has got me thinking (often dangerous).
I don't know if similar vehicles were built elsewhere - if they were, this might mean that a freelance kitbash could be credible.
I guess I'll never find out - so I might just have to use up a few bodyshell scraps (and bits of plastikard, etc). I might also need to spend some drawing up plans in Illustrator - well, it certainly beats watching the "festive" turkeys on the television!
