Show Me Your Trolleys

I few shots of a Labelle kit finished (somewhat as there are details to be added) last year. Also, an old Bowser converted to run on the overhead. The Trolley Park area is a favorite of mine in the basement! And who should be better able to rate that!

My Brooklyn PCC Route 68 trolley is powered for DC  2-rail, so I do not run it. I do run the Brooklyn Peter Witt #6454 by Bachmann. The others are unpowered Corgi.

Totally love the "El" you have built - where did you get the supporting girders?

 

GeoPeg......I scratch built the EL with Polystyrene...The EL starts at the Bellerose station and makes a loop up to a second level behind the city buildings. All the structures in these pictures are scratch built with Polystyrene.

This is is one of Walt Cameron’s Western Hobbycraft Johnstown cars.

Got it out this week, hadn’t run it in awhile, and have had fun running it on the High Line.

Being in S, there are very few trolleys available.  A few years ago, Terry Putt made a nice Birney trolley.  He offered them in a few paint scheme, and also in kit form.  Mine is a kit and painted in Detroit Street Railways colors.  It took me longer to mask the colors than to do the actual painting.   It's a basic trolley and runs very well.  Now, if someone made a PCC in S...

This is my only Trolley. It is a Lionel Birney Trolley produced in honor of the 40th anniversary of Grzyboski's Train Store. It represents the Lackawanna & Wyoming Valley Railroad, better know as the Laurel Line which ran from Scranton to Wilkes-Barre. The line closed in 1976.
