Are any of you familiar with this company, also known as OcCre? They make some kits in 1:32 scale for 45mm track, and have a website http://www.occre.com/ . They make what appears to be a rather nice little kit for powering a Stephenson's Rocket locomotive. I can't find any pricing info on their website. Any and all help would be appreciated.

Hi,
I have built two of the Occre trams. Berlin & Soller ones and was so pleased with them I am now building the Tibidabo one. The kits a very accurate but follow the instructions! An email to them will get you the instructions in English as a .pdf file. I get them from Glendale Junction site and I use motor blocks from G-Bits who supply USA trains motor block which fit these trams near enough. I propose to build them all but they are very time consuming.
Regards Kayanbee

I think some of the UK train stores carry the motor units. This place carries some of their kits, might write to them, they are in the USA.

The rocket looks cool, says it can be motorized, how? Hide the motor in the barrel and chain drive? The San Fran cable car is sweet!

Greg, I purchased the Rocket Kit. The drive is a motor block that has solid brass wheels that replaces the scale wheels on the tender. All the
scale wheels on the Loco and tender are wood construction. I thought they were metal. Lots of metal detail parts though.
