Oooh by the way please note I wasn't pointing out the thing with the angles in the corners to nitpick or out of annoyance! It was just an observation. I'm delighted that we're getting these cars, as I can use several of both! Of the three bay Alex has already done, I'm planning to get at least three - two for Milwaukee and one for GTW!

Oh no problem - with small changes like that it's extremely easy to do multiple versions.

This style.
The one in model form is the rarer design.

That looks like a PS2 CD( center discharge), a newer and bigger car than the in progress PS2 3 bay. The little 2 bay would need a lot of re-design to turn into that, taller, different outlets, etc. I'd buy one if it ever happens :>) ...dave

Dave, I do believe you're right (I'm still really only learning about post-1950 equipment!). Even so, they seem to have been much more common.

If a PS2CD comes to pass, I'd take several of those, too!

Yeah it's a bit of work. I look forward to doing more cars and variations of cars though - variety is very cool and everything fits in my non prototypical TT world :mrgreen:

The latest version is here and I'm happy with it so I've made it available for everyone. For those interested, it can be found at the usual URL: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/ttnut
I won't bother with detailed pics since they're exactly the same as the 2 bay version.

Mmmmmm, maybe. Size isn't the only factor. I can look into it but there are no plans for more cars until the loco is done.
