Stuart Marshall has bought several of my Dick Kerr chassis with modified wheelbases and fixing points for use under trams, these pictures are of 3 of them. All are based on Smallbrook parts, left is a water carrier similkar to that used in Dublin, center is a motor van based on those around Manchester and right is an unmodified Brill tram.
For those who are not happy with a plastic chassis, my Big Diesel Bogie will do the same job but is an etched kit that needs building.
This is owned by Andrew Shreeve and is the first of my Brazil kits to use the bowaters coupling box.
It seems that quite a bit of the body was replaced, the boiler is solid bar. These pictures were taken after a final assembly before dismantling again for painting, the cab rear and the angle section along the sides came out particularly well.
The rather nice turntable in the last picture is scratch built
The coach has corrugated sides added on top of the plain one supplied
The buffer beam arrangements were not as original and it had Swedish safety valves and an electric generator and lights, all of which had to be scratch built.
This was my test build, the one I take to shows.
From top left are LKM NS2 and Schoma, Feldbahn Struver, LKM NS1, Jung EL105, Armoured Simplex, CKD 30R, Lord Raglan, Woolwich, 28hp Simplex,standard gauge Simplex and finally Mars.
All use my chassis, mostly 3D printed but the RAR locos and small Simplex are etched.
