I am working on a kit-bash of a Labelle traction motor trying to make the Chicago North Shore & Milwaukee Railroad MOW car #606.  This has been and is a challenge but also fun. I am actually thinking I will have something that can run in another couple of months. What I need is a powered and trailing truck that would work for 3 rail. I know this is heretical but that is what I am I guess. A couple of years back Jim Rivers located one and it worked just great but he hasn't been able to help me of recent.  I have thought about buying a Bowser from e-bay and cannibalizing it but I'm not sure how well that would work with the wood floor on the Labelle kit. I am posting to see if others may have been able to come up with something for this task..

Thank you for your time,606underconstruction

Depending on how scale you want the truck but I would consider the power truck from an MTH railking doodlebug. You can get them sporadically on da nay, cannibalize from a broken or ps1 doodlebug or possibly from MTH parts. Your trolley may look high water pants but it would run a lot better than the Bowser set up.
