You've got the shape spot on! Now let's see if it runs when you actually build it...

Yes those slopes are just like the real thing, it would be good to see the real thing running.

I see you used the image that I rendered. :wink:

Gotta see if I do the same to the other side for you to add here.

Great effort there. Would also love to see it realy build and see it it runs on rails. The SNOT is very well done. :thumbup::wink:

You made a good job on the appearance of it. :classic:

However I am doubtful of the articulation of the middle because there is not enough room in the middle between the two sections.

Excellent design, but now you must try and brick build it 'Sergio'......anyway we have similar trams on the city to Glenelg line here in Adelaide. :wink:

Brick On ! :classic:

I like the use of the mini flanged wheels they are very useful in small steam engines and I believe they are under used in locomotives. Also is the center part of the train is there where the PF motor and battery box?

That's some fantastic SNOT work as per usual, Sérgio. Having seen your previous MOCs I don't doubt this won't look just as gorgeous built in reality. I can't wait to see it constructed. Admittedly, yellow is not a favorite color of mine, but it looks great on this little tram! The pantograph is unique, too - all in all, great work. Good luck with your close coupling system!

Also is the center part of the train is there where the PF motor and battery box?

If you look closely, you can spot that he's got larger diameter wheels in the center, which I can only assume are small spoked RC train wheels, so I believe you're right..

Nice design, I like it. This snot technique fits very well, looks like the real tram. :thumbup:

Thank you all :)

Idea is to get together with elastic, split up in the corners and on the straights join again.

Supposedly it is to walk with a 9V motor for me remains the most reliable

Hehe,

I'd challenge this - there is quite some space in the middle section - and there were some nice posts about how to realize close coupling in this forum ... :wink: - Sergio will make it happen, I'm sure.

Regards,

Thorsten
