Lowlug "Seat" gondola

Recommended Posts

I found the instructions on @Duq´s flickr and after collecting enough seats I build one in maintenance-of-way yellow.

I rebuilt the gondola in brown, shortened it and changed it a bit below the floor:

Nice! It will run much better in the shorter version. The original is pushing the limits of fixed-axle cars.

Update:

I liked the build, so I build a second one:

Then I build a matching stake car:

Lastly I build one in maintenance-of-way yellow:

Brickwolf,

Cleaver idea and execution you have there! Proof that sometimes, simple is more. Alas, all things must come to an end as I see the dreaded scrap gondola. R.I.P. Metroliner.

I build a new seat gondola in dark bluish grey with black accents. Inspiration came from french freight cars where this pattern was quite common:

Simple yet so efficient! I like it very much. I didn't even know you could use seats like this :D

Does the octan use clone parts? I like the dark bluish gray buffers and wheels holder! :thumbup:

They do exist of course in different sets including the Santa Fe.

Hi all, after a bit of digging, I finally found all the seats to complete the gondola in 12v / 4,5v version:

WP_20180204_18_12_31_RichWP_20180204_18_13_14_Rich

It is all made by vintage parts, following the style of grey era sets. Stacks are mounted thanks to 4070 "brick with headlight" parts. Since it is a bit more "innovative" , it seemed to me a phase II grey era wagon, so I coupled it with the glorious 7735. :laugh:

It is a very nice addition to my collection! Thank you @Brickwolf for sharing this!!! :thumbup:

this is amazing! I love how you used the chairs, it makes a little more space and some amazing detail, now I want to see your other creations!

 

Edit: Oh, I only now just realized that you didn't come up with it, great build anyway!
