One interesting vehicle I spotted at ExpoRail (Canadian Railway Museum) is Canadian Pacific Railway track inspection vehicle #M-235. Presumably for the track engineer. Originally a 1939 Buick Century, modified with a new chassis and railroad wheels, air-pump and brakes. Bit more comfortable than a Wickham trolley and with a maximum speed of 115 km/hour on the rails from the straight-8 engine. Now if I could one in 1:87........

Wow, me too and a straight 8! I suppose it corners as if it's on rails!

Hi Andy, Bill,

I've a Keykits motor bogie with Tenshodo SPUD innards that would fit inside. Finding a 1939 Buick in HO or OO could be the interesting part though. Available in O as a diecast model for mucho dinero.

Interesting though.

Nigel

Hi Nigel,

This is the best I came up with, but a bit more time may prove fruitful:

Cheers,

Bill :)

Rats, rewind and delete that last post, as despite putting in 1:87, I got a big-un!

Sorry oops,

Bill :oops:

Hi Bill,

As I said, mucho dinero. It's an elusive beast in HO.

Hmm, I spy a cunning plan for a wee plank layout. Ah, so many vehicles, so little time!

Bill :)

Lovely looking vehicle that Nigel.I would like to model something similar,a landrover used on the Longmoor Military Railway that i'm modelling although that may prove next to impossible in N scale.

Hi Alan,

A motorized Landy in N? Try http://motorbogies.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=1_13 or http://www.nigellawton009.com/VeeTipper.html for some small motors/bogies and ideas (especially Nigel's inclined motor set-ups that would put the motor in the back of the Landy). N Brass Locos also have some interesting chassis bits that could be useful, plus a Dean Goods kit - http://www.nbrasslocos.co.uk/nloco.html#chak

Some of the kato N-gauge chassis's or the Tomytecc N-scale range tram and loco motorized chassis's might be suitable. Check eebygum.

Nigel

Thanks Nigel,i wasn't thinking of motorising it but now you've got me thinking.My original thought was to obtain an Oxford die cast landy and fit some pony wheels and use it as a static model.I wonder if i could get a DCC decoder in it?.:hmm

Hi Ed,

Check these out - the BMC mini looks an interesting one to try and model.
