With my new interest in all things trams, trolleys and streetcars, I am inspired !
Yes. Destination Yarloop. Its also where the only 3'6" gauge prototype was... That was very upsetting, the lot was burn to the ground though some of the heavy iron items survived.Got to ask - did you name the carriage after Yarloop, the town in Western Australia? It got ravaged by a bush fire and the best example of a preserved railway maintenance site was destroyed - a travesty!
Hi Monty,Does anyone have or know of a supply of spares for this tram... ?
Treav,On a model tram note, I have just purchased a LGB 23360 Hamburg tram set from O/S and when it arrived the motor car was displaced severely in the box and one end of it damaged as per the attached picture. The External box and the LGB carton weren’t damaged and it was adequately packed othewise. The seller advised that it was ok when sent. Obviously during the trip to OZ it was dropped or came to a sudden stop.
LGB typically doesn’t have any spares, the seller tried but was unable to help so I have repaired the break as best I can.
Does anyone have or know of a supply of spares for this tram, even parts of a similar body would be acceptable? The part specifically required is the outside, lower, front cab end.
Failing being able to obtain a replacement I probably will try to disguise the repair by covering it with an advertising sticker of some sort, there are a number of suitable sheets available from LGB and others it seems.
