Blog- LUGSDALE Road (LMS) - How to add movement to N gauge streets

Well spare time to actually do anything lately has been in incredibly short supply, and progress on any projects has almost stopped.


With my recent lack of attendance lately I reckon the chaps at the Warrington Model Railway club must think I have given up on model railways and taken up a another hobby.


Anyway on the weekend the postman delivered a little parcel from Japan that included a Kato 4 wheel chassis, which I tracked down via Evil Bay and being a technological God, managed to order and pay for it without getting into a bit of a mess like when I tried ordering the weekly shop. Remember the Courgette shortage that was all over the news a while back, well err it had nothing to do with me..........


My idea for Lugsdale road was to add a little movement to the street scene, and considered moving vehicles like Buses and Vans and the like, so being the sensible modeller that I am, I did a little research by reading one of my books on Trams. That's when the obvious hit me, N gauge road vehicles are tiny :)

So until I can figure out a solution to the problem, I think I might see what I can do with a Kato chassis and one of those Matchbox Tetley tea trams I seem to have amassed (I know the chassis is a 4 wheel job and the Tram is supposed to be bogeyed, the Domestic Overlord said not with Snot :().

So all I have to do now is find away of getting some time to work on combining the two items to create a hybrid working tram, while I give some serious thought to how I can actually add movement to the streets of Lugsdale road, I'm sure the solution will become apparent eventually.


As ever, until the next time Happy Modelling :)
