short wheelbase

Post by Sallytrafic »

Part of my layout uses fine track and I will only use the forthcoming Gronk 08 shunter on that bit. My question: is there any short wheelbase rolling stock available (less than 38mm long)?

OzRail has a bunch on his Shapeways shop at https://www.shapeways.com/shops/everythingtgauge?li=pb - They're designed for tgauge.com's pinpoint wheels and Eishindo couplers.

I've been experimenting on and off with designs for 12T wagons.....first cut in 2013:

Then a refined design in 2015 that was easier to make, but they didn't run all that well....probably because they were too light!

I've not got round to re-visiting the design ever since, unfortunately.
