For that you must sawing the brass-frame to increase the distance between the truck bolsters.


That sounds wrong.
It should be much easier to talk to Lok'n'Roll instead in order to get the correct wheelbase between the bolsters :)
I have heard that he is quite busy right now. Once he has some time for TT again, it would be much better to get it done correctly from the start than modifying the brass frame.

What would you be change?
wheelbase - between wheels
rotary trunnion distance - between trucks center

The first one is near in scale. Not changeable without a new truck construction - very expensive.
To the second I wrote yesterday.

Lok-N-Roll fit the frame to the Lionel-Chassis. And yes, his wife speak english.

The same is with spare parts from Tillig, there is no truck with the correct wheelbase.

the distance i want to change is between bogie centres, that is centre of front bogie to centre of rear bogie.

as the chassis is designed for the lionel, can someone tell me what the distance between bogie centres is?

i'm thinking of its use on a GP30 or 35 which is only one foot longer than a GP7 -GP9 wheelbase. it may be that it is already correct -one foot is not a lot in TT.
