As an "aside", I believe Coronado Scale Models has SR&RL sideframes for On2/On30 and PSC made/makes some also. If interested, might be worth checking out. I still think Tom should have Shapeways make some in 1:48 and maybe 1:35. I know that I would get some!

I already do make them in 1:48.

They do need a re-design though, they are going to get added end beam and brakes, not just because I want to add the details, but because if you try using them under brass cars the weight is enough to force the sideframes apart and the wheels drop out.

Hi Teebee: Being a 2 footer (Maine style) and using this 1/35 size, I to would be very interested in the passenger trucks. Any thoughts as to freight trucks, either swing motion or regular style. Thanks
Talk soon
