Today the tram was upgraded electrically so that it can now supply trailers with electricity via the mechanical and electrical magnetic coupling.
All of my trams are still being retrofitted in this way.
Be nice to see some close up pics of how the power coupling arrangements work.

Here is the answer on how I built the electrical supply between the trams.
I drive digitally and that makes it a little easier.
All power and sidecars have an A and B side. That means all cables in the direction of travel go to the brass coupling on the right. All cables on the left go to the electrical magnetic coupling.
All trailers without brake lights are connected to the rail power in this way. A function decoder is also installed in trailers with brake lights.
I hope I could help a little.

Latest (Corona) project Ksw trailer 532. It needs some passengers and handrails inside the car under the roof and a hand line for the outside bell.

My workroom is currently the coolest room where I can be.
I am currently working on two tram trailers. Both are made for my friends. One will be a Hagen tram trailer and the other one will be a Wuppertal trailer. The Hagener has to be repainted and rebuilt. The front sections get new brake and taillights. He also gets a function decoder. The decoder is built into the Ksw trailer for Wuppertal. Unfortunately I made a mistake. The distance between the rail and the body is too great. I have to get about 4/5 mm deeper.

The former modell was a freelance museum tram. So it was labeled and painted.
I put two conductors' bells on the roof.

I removed the advertisement and the lettering.

Fortunately, I got the right front parts for this car and my friend Wilfried adapted them.


At the same time, I continued to work on the Ksw trailer. He got a decoder and couplings.

In the original, the trailer is also deeper than the tram cars.
