Dallas,

Is this the T-Lorry you were reffering to?

Mike:

I sometimes have trouble getting links to work on my computer, also. Try cutting and pasting this web address, which is:

I did finally get there, Keith.... Thanks!

Did you see that video that they linked to on the second page? I re-posted the link to that here in this thread, a couple posts above. It's a fantastic look at WWI trench railroading.

And that really is a good website on the subject that you found. Thanks again for calling our attention to it.

No ... but I'm sure I could find a use for one of those!



This is the proto photo from the previous page ...



This is Resicast 1/35 kit (#35154 or 35.154), which includes three trailer cars ...  I've got one of these tucked away to build eventually ...

Interestingly, I didn't see that model on the website. I would get one of those myself if I had.

<edit> I found one on Ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Resicast-1-35-UK-Ford-Model-T-Draisine-Battle-of-the-Somme-1916-WWI-351154-/181137691867?pt=Model_Kit_US&hash=item2a2ca5d4db

I'm not interested in paying that kind of money for it.

Ouch!  Yeah, I think I got mine for about 1/3 of that ... knew that I wasn't really in a hurry, so I did a saved search and waited till one showed up cheap ... probably waited a year or so ... got it for around $50 or $60 ... and it's still sitting here waiting to be built a year or so after that! :)  (But it will get built and does look like quite a nice kit)

Meanwhile, RJ Products has the kit listed for $98, which is a whole lot cheaper than that other listing:

http://www.rjproducts.com/Catalogs/Resicast/Resicast.html

You can get the phone number for them here:
http://www.rjproducts.com/

(I've ordered from them by phone ... it's been a while ... also got some other Resicast items they were clearing out on ebay once) ...

If your interested or teetering on the Resicast kit, lemme know and I can shoot some pix of the parts bags ...

Thanks, Dallas. That price seems more reasonable but I still think I'll let that idea rest for now. I got too many irons in the fire now anyway.
