Hi Kim,

I could give you a hint, how about some of the field ancillary locomotive of the

"Dörentrupper Sand and Tonwerke".

I like the new vertical element. helps the eye from "landing on the pavement". the trolley in the above link, maybe festooned with similar gay colors as the buildings and hauling a toaster rack car sunday excursion of sight see-ers perhaps on their way to the pub crawl, would add a really nice addition to the operation.

hi all just seen Helmuts link please help me before I fall over -very nice Helmut.i just need to know where to put the power unit but just the detail for the pick up is great. trolley poles have always looked good but tricky but this method of power collection is much better as the wires can be all over the place and still look good. as always thanks for the interest more to come cheers Kim

just a follow-on -what do you think the drum on the roof inside the cab was used for it seems to have a handle for winding.the loco proportions to me look perfect for Gn15.

That is the cutest little trolley I've ever seen!

Hi Kim, how can I help you?
The locomotives are self-built on a chassis of a lore.
The locomotives were operated with 220 volts of DC power.
As the driving line was interrupted at crossroads, there was this cable drum under the roof to drive over the road.

Hi Kim,

Yes, an incredibly attractive vehicle only as old as I have become, I can not build anything more I like and therefore concentrate on my monastery stud model.

On the cable drum with the crank you are looking for, an electric wire is wrapped which serves to power the locomotive when it has to cross a road. Because there is no wire on the roads.

I think for your layout this loco would be absolutely perfect.

hi
so it is what would call a power extension cord in the barrel very practical.i will most likely take bits of the design and use it on my model mu 9 mm power unit takes up a bit of room so everything is built around it.good detail of the power pick up her is another picture of a pole pickup nice but very fiddly
cheers

if there's any "trolley-ing" to be done around here, there's a wealth of knowledge in this thread:  http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=2906&forum_id=53
