Mr. Bachmann,

Now that the O scale Peter Witt is out, when can we expect ours?  Grin  Also was there any thoughts on a previous thread about simple modifications to the venerable Big Hauler passenger cars to function as interurbans? i.e. Single end molding for a front/rear, end caps for the roof to cover the end moldings, and a simple universal side frame for a block based on the current truck with representations of a few truck type, a Brill-like, Standard-like and Baldwin-like side frames.  With these simple modifications, a host of trolley/interurbans could be build, freight motor (full baggage), combine (same), full passenger (coach), Parlor (Observation).  Kitbashers could splice the cars together for longer cars, different window combinations etc.  Maybe an insert with an arched window instead of the square sashes.  You could also sell the parts to retrofit existing cars: new floor, ends, and roof; powered or unpowered truck sets...

Just my two cents...

Ted Roy

This guy trading as Model 'Trolley Systems' used to do exactly what you are asking for.  I have an old cat but it s file size is too big for here.  It may be worth you contacting him and see if he has anything left?  I understand he does bespoke castings so if he still has the moulds......

Hey Ted;
