After a number of trials I decided it was about time I had a go at making a proper train set. In fact I made three.

I kept it simple by sticking to three car sets with the centre car being the power car. The chassis for the power car came from a diesel locomotive and the idea was to have the trailers with the same dimensions as the loco.

To achieve this the trailers are completely scratch built. Wheels used are the same as on the power chassis and couplings are standard small loop and link.

Below is one of the final sets.
