I posted this info in another Trolley topic, but thought it best to post this info separately.

Over the years I have built replacement "power bricks' for the trolleys.  I started out using big Pittman motors,
but too expensive (for me and for the customer).

Later I built a trolley drive using a Shay motor and cluster gear, mated to a Stock Drive axle gear.  Have done about fifteen of these.  I decided to do it properly, so I am building the drill jig for the power block and hope be producing a run of these in the very near future, to hazard a guess probably with in a month.  Haven't completely priced it out yet, but credits would be available for Trolley wheels (or Shay wheels) and Shay cluster gears.

Also will want to buy running Shay motors and the little black cluster gears (two per shay motor block).

These have worked out and I will warrant them as my I do my other products.

Thanks, Bill;

I think that is something I can't do (it's no fun).

Barry, thank you for not really retiring.  My Connie didn't either.  Welcome back, even though you never left.
