Thanks folks,
I agree there are some exellent standard gauge railcars/busses/trucks out there too!

Here's an N scale, standard gauge rail bus I'm building for my (fictional) Black Hills Lumber Co.:

It looks pretty trolly like to me...

Railbus circa 1930.

This is NOT narrow gauge.  It was used in the state of Victoria in Australia where the gauge was/is 5 feet 3 inches.

Texans tell us that bigger is better



The front and hood were painted with black and silver diagonal stripes

Here are a couple of photos of railcars I have known. The truck was named Little Bill and he went off the turntable before the crew (I) could catch him and became a kit with lots of broken parts.



Little Bill's drive was used to build the current Model T railcar which is still unnamed but very much appreciated. And the new car is watched very carefully when he's on the turntable.



I plan to build more in the future, I can't get enough of railcars. The above cars are 1:32 scale narrow gauge.

Well done!!! There we go...

This is a model I made from scratch in H0n30. I started with a Roskpof van and made the box entirely in Evergreen styrene. Using a Proto 100 Alco in N scale mechanism. It was think for my CompaƱia Ferroviaria Siete Lagos. Recently I sold this car to a friend... because I like the big scale, so, I am thinking to do a big model in 0n30.

Cheers

Lucas

Beautiful job Lucas!!:glad:

I agree with Trebor, that would look great in On30.

I have a few of the Galloping Geese with the bus body's and I have an old Cadillac
car that I have been planning on doing this with for a long time now.

I hope you follow through and build your large scale version and share with us as you go! :thumb:

Good Luck!

Lucas-great model! It is really fine when we consider that it is HOn30...truly nice. Many years ago, I built in HOn30. It was a great size and lots of N scale stuff could be used..but now, my poor old eyes need a larger scale to enjoy building things. Goodness, I may get so bad that I will join DW in his 7/8 scale adventure! If I had the cash, I would out-do DW and build a real 2 foot line on my estate. Ahhh, to dream.

Lucas I think that your railbus is stunning!

Woodmeister-

With 7/8 you could build a cattle car large enough for Peach Head to ride, and join in the fun!
