Home made Bing cars

Arne ·
About 1 year ago I had started to build my own cars. With photos I had drawn a layout. This layout was printed on a sign of 20x30 cm size. But this is no tin plate, it, s 0,4 mm steel, so it´s a hard work. I use only simple tools. My first car was a copy of the rare Marklin Heinz cetchup car, but made as Bing car. The printed sign Building of the car The roof The next car is a copy of the Bing Budweiser Beer car. And at the moment my last car is not a copy, it´s my own idea. A Coca Cola car...

New Video: Bing Tram

Jim Kelly-Evans ·
With all of the snow here in Philadelphia, I've had plenty of time to spend in the workshop. Here's a video I just made of my ca. 1909 Bing Tram. It's gauge 1 and runs on low voltage DC. The motor has a permanent magnet and the exterior is a combination of hand painted details and lithography.

I'll assume that is the same process as the made to order mugs wrapped in plastic? I thought about that too, but figured it would need marx style rounded corners and a thick gauge sheet of metal to avoid being crushed during the shrink or over time. It wouldn't be dishwasher safe either(I have a plain mug today ) There was some paper wraps made for Marx, and some designs can be found for home printing if you hunt a bit. But those rounded corners make it easy. They look good,...... this looks...

ADRIATIC, the print is from a printing house for giftware. They print some different things like cups, T-shirts and this tin signs. It´s printed on the tin without film or similar. Arne

Thank you, outsourcing printing leaves lots of options to be explored today too. The apparent thickness, durability, and flexibility of the print along the bends caught my eye having been in the trade myself. After years of apathy for it in general, lately I've found myself curious about many product changes and sourcing trends. But it's all about the trains this round. Around the holidays, I always did a lot of custom gift production for extra cash. They paid well and were always "needed...

Would it be possible to pre form it from sheet metal, then glue card stock/paper printed with the design over the metal?

Re: Home made Bing cars

Arne ·
Yes, it is possible. The german manufacturer Zeuke had made a lot of cars with paper glued on the tin in the 50s. But I like the Nurnberg style of the 20s, so I work with the printed tin. Arne

One of the processes for applying designs to metal is a process called dye sublimation. The metal has a very thin coating of polyester and the printer used is just like your home DeskJet printer. What's different is the ink used. The dye sub ink is printed in reverse on a sheet of paper and the paper is placed face down on the metal substrate. It is then put into a heat press just like the old heat transfer t-shirts were a while back. The heat vaporizes the ink and fuses it into the...

As I can see from the here published pictures the old fashion Nürnberg technique is perfect. Thanks for sharing with us this interesting and well documented manufacturing procedure and the final results. I use inkjet-printed adhesive photopaper or alternatively UV-resistant adhesive vinylfoil on a clinical clean surface of thin sheetmetal (Al or Fe), then punch few holes, cut with scissors and bend the body shape before mounting on the underframe.

Arne, It took me all night to find this topic again. I should have liked it the first time I found it. Very interesting and you did a great job on the cars you showed, but I like the Heinz car the most. Can you elaborate on how you went from photo #1 to #2 & #3...in other words, what did you use to cut the walls from the sheet steel and then fold/form the walls, roof, etc? Tom

Fandor kind of weekend

Jim O'C ·
Picked up a few new Fandor 8-wheel passenger coaches this weekend. 3215 International Express coach. Not in the best shape but cheap. Also won a 5412 baggage car and three more International Express coaches at the Nette Auction. Now to scavenge a few doors and one roof. They will go nicely with the 6570 baggage car I picked up last year. Don't know why the 8-wheel cars strike my fancy, the trucks look boxy and tall, but I like the look and craftsmanship of the coaches and most have simple...

Those are all nifty cars but they made the wheels and trucks so big! A hallmark of the early years.

i only have a few Fandor pieces and they are all 4-wheel freight cars, but my guess is that their passenger cars were also built to a small scale so the wheel size is a lot more exaggerated, especially when they have to sit completely below 4-wheel truck bolsters. it is rather funny seeing a passenger car wheel just about as big as a doorway, though. cheers...gary

Hello Tom, hope, the translate is to understand. you need only simple tools. A few scissors for tin, left and right hand. A nibbling tool to cut out the hole for the door and cut out the holder A tool to bend ( I don´t knew the englisch name of them) After the first bend I take a wire to bend the round Round on the roof sides Here a box car, made from a tin biscuit box. You see the rounded roof sides and the rounded part to slide the door. A view of the holder. Other tools are a elektric...

Garrett's 2016 Christmas village and train layout

Garrett76 ·
It's a start. Going with a traditional oval layout unlike previous years "behind-the-tree" format. It's 4x8 modular benchwork on a folding table. Have to keep it up off the floor lest the dog reenact a scene from Godzilla. I hope to incorporate several button activated operating accessories to make the layout interactive for family and guests. More to come.

Hey looks like a good start to me. Two houses ago when I didn't have much space, I set up my 4x8 on a folding table too. Plywood on top of that and I had a blast running my trains. It's all in the imagination! Would enjoy seeing more pics as you progress.

Here's a pic of the underside of the benchwork. I hope to reuse this for the next few years. Any further expansions would be build with similar modular 4x4 panels. The rectangular cutouts at the back are to allow clearance for some curtains with the main body of the layout staged close to a wall

Try this and see if you like it 8" x 17" cut outs. Road bed is close, no touching.

G, Looking at the 3D, the inside loop won't fit. The roadbed edges of inner and outer are on top of one another at the bottom. What's the width and depth of the cut-outs for the curtains?

I think the cutouts are 8 x 18. The track plan is more of a guideline than a rule. There will be some changes in final execution. I'm not bumping out into the rear section due to some scenery elements

Your idea about using the plastic fold up table as benchwork to support the layout is brilliant. I never would have thought of it. I learn something every time I read this forum.

pic of the track on benchwork. the back corners are slightly off the table because I had to add spacers at the apex of the outside curves. hope to get to work on it a little more the next few evenings.

I really liked the Hallmark metallic red, but decided against it because of the "starter" 0-8-0 engine. the LionChief Plus is definitely the way to go

I saw one of the Hallmark sets this weekend and the red on them is shiny, similar to the way the green looks in the Lionel picture above. It is disappointing that the green is so dark.
