showed some details about my Brill 21e trucks.
On display at TrainWorld Brussels until end of April.
I am preparing three identical Brill 21e, trucks for two Lisbon trams (one heavy toy - 100% metal - local production with two 5 Watt motors + 1 Occre kit) et one Soller (Occre)
More about tram trucks and wheels:
I do not like Tenmille or Slaters wheels too much.
In essence their diameter is too small and they are just wagon wheels, not tram wheels..
I have started the construction of two Belgium trams. they will be displayed end 2022 at an exhibition about Julien Dulait and the Belgian company "Electricité et Hydraulique":,
- one motorcar of the so called "North company", in fact "Tramways Electriques d'Ostende Littoral", first private company to run trams between Ostend-Mariakerke and Westende, prior to the SNCV/vicinal
- one motorcar with Dulait batteries which was running on the Brussels meter gauge system (not the vicinal !) e.g; to Tervueren, before the take)over by "Tramways Bruxellois" and conversion to normal gauge.
Note: E. & H. is the ancestor of ACEC that produced electric equipment for the 5 continents, for most Belgium trams, including PCC cars of Marseille and Saint Etienne, etc, etc
Here are wheels, made in nickel silver, based on original drawings and NEM/Morop models norms.
Own 3D design, sent to a casting company specialised in tiny bits, like jewels.
We will keep you updated with the details of this exhibition and the progress of these models.
Here under, some pictures
