Well, for anyone who's ever (almost) had their Harley get the better of 'em, this thing is the hallmark of stability.

Hi Herb
that double-decker tramcar would probably weigh in at about 10 tons empty and probably less than 15 tons with every seat full and crammed to capacity with standing adults- Remember then you used to get more adults/ton than you do these days :P

All braking would have been done by the tram motor (dummy), with probably only a lever parking brake on the double-decker trailer car.

So who needs full-sized knuckle couplers for such a "tiny" load - A flat drawbar and some decent pins and some safety chains as backup will do the job ;)

John, you just have to learn that some times--mainly when I'm awake---- I am snarky and sarcastic. Bourbon, properly administrated, helped to alleviate the condition in the past, but now the Doc doesn't want me to drink. Grrrr.

Herb :bang:

This is the refined version of it.
No need for a reverse gear box!

Hi Helmut :wave:

Refined ?
A railcar for the Museum Of Modern Art ?
Where's the rust ?
Don't tell me, German triple coat zinc, right ?

Nice one Helmut :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:

Guess who bought 2 identical bus kits last week ?

ME ! :bg:

BTW there's no need for a reverse gearbox in 11/11A either !!

;)

Si.

Anyone else got a favorite double-ender ??

It's odd, it's rusted, and it's on rails.

'Nuff said.

"Anyone else got a favorite double-ender ??"

Sorry, Si. This is obviously a single-ender.

I like the guardrails. Or are they grab rails for leverage?
