After getting my hands on a Tweetsy ten wheeler,

I found that the coaches are different than the standard Bachmann coaches.            


Found some pictures and ideas to change a Bachmann,

so that it is more looking like a Tweetsy coach.
                 

They are not as long as the prototype but that's OK for me,

makes them easier on small turns.


First get them dismantled:





OK here we go.

First get the saw working ...





That's looking good.

This is what I have now ...

First walls cut out, and give it a try ...















Not so bad at all.

Gives another look to those coaches.

My money is on both the passengers and management

being happy with the new car.
