Converted Tri-ang Coal Wagon

The converted Tri-ang coal wagon has been painted and… Surprise! … there are two of them.

Resin casting the fake chassis made it easy to make a second one.

But wait, these are coal wagons. They are far too clean. The next job has to be some weathering.


  1. Hello Steve:

    I am contemplating a similar conversion but using North Amercian HO rolling stock which typically uses two axle trucks (bogies). I have held off on the conversation until I can source N scale 9 mm wheelsets of an appropriate diameter. How did you handle the 16.5 to 9 mm conversion? Do you know of a good source of 9 mm wheelsets of various diameters?
