Making own rolling stock

5581 Views 21 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  Trains West
I would like to build my own rolling stock for my Ruby 1 which is G gauge 1:20.3 scale. When looking on the net the price of the rolling stock is too high. So making my own would be a cheaper options so I thought.
Looking at the price of wheels and bogie's you can pay the same price for the wheels and bogie's as you can for a complete wagon.
 
can you suggest the best way to house the wheel and axle to a home made Boigie or any other method that you have come across

Does anyone happen to know where I might find a picture of the Charles Ro truck, #R2030, that is mentioned above? Is it about the same size as a Bachmann or Aristo or ???

When I go to the website, it does now show a picture.

Thanks!
