Dave,

your railtruck is really excellent!

I have just started with Gn15. I'm modeling a tram loco for a 15" railway, transporting aquavit barrels from a distillery in the north of Toeffelholm to the next 30" main line station. For this I have to build some flat carriages for the barrel transport as well.

So I want to ask you, what axle bearings you used for your tank car and what kind of Kadee couplers you have choosen?

Sorry I missed your post Juergen.

The chassis for the tank car was a chassis from a  Thomas the Tank coach.






I forget if it was Annie or Clarabelle.

Grind cut or sand the bits from the couplers and bumpers off and glue a set of Kadee #75 couplers right to the bottom of the chassis and they line up perfectly.

Thanks for the information Dave.
I have looked for these, but only found them in a set with loco.

I try to find some axle bearings in a acceptable size as single parts. I think I have to thumb through my old 0-scale narrow gauge magazines. Or I use flatcars with boogies.

Sorry to hear you can only find them as sets.

Here I can find them at hobby shops where the cars and locos can be purchased individually.

Here is a link to where you can purchase them on the web from a stateside location.

Good luck with your version whichever way you go.!! :rah: :thumb:

What a trip to go thru this build. Most of the time I have no idea what you guys are talkin about but the work is mesmerizing. You must not sleep. How do you get all this stuff done and post all this stuff for us to see. I feel totally uneffective. Unbelievable work! Are you really two or three guys? I'm afraid to keep lookin on this site.

OK Kidlinks...here's another "old one" from way back when. There is a good bit of Gn15 "action" now and this piece deserves a replay. Those in smaller/larger scales would do good to check this out. I give it a 10 and you can really dance to it!

I think you need to work faster. Your models are rusting BEFORE you finish them!. Jose (poking your eye).
