Upgrading the Tri-ang DMU

Post by RodTT »

If I can summon up the parts and the determination I have half a mind to upgrade this rather nice looking Tri-ang DMU I bought some years ago to modern standards including all-wheel pickup from the driving car, DCC and possibly sound. Has anyone done something similar and if so can they suggest a suitable replacement drive/wheels? 3SMR here in the UK have lots of motor bogies on their website but they seem to be all sold out. I've also asked on a forum here in the UK. I'd consider rejoining the 3mm Society if they had the parts.

I do have some dual-shafted can motors like the ones I used for the GP9s and I daresay Sebnitz might have some suitable cardans but obviously the GP9-size trucks wouldn't be suitable.
