I thought it was about time to build some MOC's in the train department, so here it is.

It's pretty simple, a link trolley used for track repairwork.

Above is a real one.

It would make a good impulse set, comments welcome.

It looks good, though I can't help but think it needs somehting on there. Maybe a small generator and a few 1x2 dark gray plates.

Thanks for your response 'Grrr' I'm going to try and design a generator to sit on it very soon.

Nice and simple. I didn't know that manual trolleys of that kind actually existed. It's good that you've posted a real life one. :thumbup:

Adding 1 or 2 accessories more would make it a nice small impulse set as you've said. :classic:

Can I have instructions? And yes, if you make them I'll leave the money on the fridge. :grin:

In seriousness-ness, It's a good designed trolley, the handle is great, although it needs some luggage on it!

Thanks 'Zorbas' and 'YG-49' for your comments, I'm currently in the middle of designing on LDD a generator to sit on this trolley. I too did not know of this device for train track repairwork was around, here is a web site I got the information from.

Tracmanrail page for track repair machines

Post pics of trolley with more gear on board a.s.a.p.

P.S. might see about uploading piece by piece construction details of this MOC - I'll see when I have time.

Nice job LT. This looks like a very useful utility car. I like the placement of the tools in the front. It would make a great Impulse Train set.

I think so to 'Grrr' looks even better with the welding rig.

Another train MOC within two days I'll be posting.
