Hi Jose. :wave:



Well it must be true then ...

... There's a prototype for everything ! ;)

( well nearly everything anyway !! ) :shocked:


Oscar & Piker huh ? :dope:

It must be true as well then ...

... You learn a new thing every day ! :f:





Oh $4!7 ... I forgot their names. ???

Which one's Oscar ?

They haven't actually 'named' the cars in the 'realistic road livery' sets. :f:

I nearly choked on my corn-flakes when I saw the U.P. decaled pack. :shocked: :shocked:



Possibly related to 'Clarabel & Annie' ?





Close, but NO CIGAR ! :P


I think I may have found a diesel loco option, to add to that perfect steamer of yours !





Maybe something for overhead fans as well. :!:





I see now, 'Oscar' is sans balcony & with end of car rest-room !

Good to know !!



:pimp:



Si.

Hi all
L: Be careful when having a stretch on the top deck.
Where is that "ZAPP!!" emoticon when you need it? :)

OK, what are those round balls on sticks, on floor two? Static electricity collectors for propulsion economy? Eagle perches?

They ran on a steam tramway(Dublin & Blessington), so no problem with overhead wires.
But quite a lot of British tramways ran open top cars with no roof and with overhead.
