They are much to big for Gauge 1.Also, I am st on a wood finish and the journey is a big part of the fun. I do alreadt have the Thomas coches in a modified state, two-tone paint, interiors and the end with the face properly sorted out.

I was able to test cut a chassis today and it went together with no drama. Hopefully by the next weekend I will have all the file prepared for the 2nds. I will post some pictures shortly.

that looks NICE!
Very nice - I see why you weren't interested in the Thomas plastic stuff!
(I built an IP Engineering Railcar from a wooden kit - much the same construction as yours?)
Please don't forget to equalize the suspension - most large scale tracks are not flat! I used the scheme that was prevalent on OO/HO years ago. On one axle, let the axle box ride in a slot, with the axle normally at the top of the slot. A small spring presses the axle bearing down, so when a bump is met, one of the axle ends can move down and keep the wheel on the track.

Attached are a sample of the 2nd class. You are seeing the corner window and the first door. Ignore the crappy finish as it was just banged on from a rattle can. The last picture shows what the inside of the coach will look like. Obviosly, there will be an interior window molding to retain the window.

Chassis V2. Shown is with no priming and has functional leaf springs. I plan to pull a couple around tomorrow.
