Well, these photos sound logical so allow me to explain:

I had some 1:29 Aristo rolling stock, kept the box car however the trailer carrier if one would call it that looked flimsy and like a toy. So rather than trash it, I decided to convert it to a "Film" car. One of the trailers was removed and I used a flex tripod to mount my video / photo camera. Height adjustable and rather than just direct couple it ahead or after the train I am making up a "pole" with couplers so that the film car will either lag behind the train or stay ahead of same depending on where I decide to place it.

The trucks are sprung and I may have to stiffen them up a bit to get rid of potential sway and shake. Don't know yet how this will work. Later today I will post the first video using this "bashed" car.


Is this "bashing".... ?

RE: My first design of a "Film" Car

Ermmm... Excuse me, but there is no film on that car


I should get one of those funny tripods.

I always thought that old piggyback car had lots of character.

Torby, LOL

Allow me to qualify. This is a "modern" film car. Shortly and if I'm lucky I will post my first video using this highly bashed up film car. Look under the Triplex thread as I have it lashed to the Hudson in theory.
