Hello,

I'm looking for designs of 4 wheeled us style coaches, passenger cars or combines.

I'll build one or two small cars for passenger service with my 2" scaled Forney, but most cars I could find are with trucks and too large.

Gerd, you may care to have a lool at the Brandbright catalog from over here.  

www.[b]brandbright[/b].co.uk

As you may know, many of the passenger cars here in UK are of the four-wheel type, and kits may offer you the opportunity to bash them into more US-looking models.  Brandbright has a world-wide shipping policy and will deduct the local taxes before shipping to an address outside the EU.

Just a thort, eh?

Best wishes

WOW!!!!!!!! Great...

Bill, that's exactly what I was looking for. Small cars like this are typical on many european railroads, but when ever I looked for passenger cars in America, I found only 8-wheel versions on trucks.

If any one else has similar photos or even drawings, feel free to post them here. Many thanks.

I think this 4-wheeler will look great behind my loco.

Gerd, "Twin Mountain Model Works" designed some very nice little 4-wheel coaches. I have two of them and they look great. Ozark Miniatures has taken over making them:

At one point, the Colorado Eastern  RR ran a single four wheel passenger car  that is believed by some to be  an ex-DR&G  bobber caboose with the cupola removed and a  clerestory added;

@rkapoaala

The loco is a redesign of my old live steam 0-4-0 Koppel engine. It's build in 2"-scale, running on 5" tracks.
Here is the log of the conversion, happend at the end of 2007.

Thanks for the other ideas. The Ozark combine looks to be very long, so I can get troubles on tight curves. But we'll see...

At first, I'll finish my toolcar and work-caboose in the next weeks.
