Hey if it keeps a postal worker from going postal, it may not be so bad!

@ BTTB

Yes sir!

@ everyone

It appears that you are all happy with the general direction and things going on here. Except for the one thing which this website can not provide - more US models.

So, Gold Coast has new wagons out this year and we're all waiting on the locos from Norkin and the TT Scale Society.

I have a topic somewhere about getting a wagon drawn up in CAD and getting a quote from some rapid prototyping companies. That's been on the back burner for a long time but I'm bumping it up on the list of priorities. I have decided on the wagon and went out today and bought said wagon in "another" scale to help with dimensions, details, etc., for the CAD version. 'Nuff said for now.

Which wagon? If you need, I can look through my materials to see if I have anything, if the car in question was first built before 1960...

Haha, We need freight cars instead of wagons unless we are modeling pre 1900 era. Some trucks would be useful though..dave

Well it's a freight car. I call them all wagons (freight wagons / passenger wagons). It's a 52' Mill Gondola. It will require new trucks as well. I've never done anything in the manufacturing world and my CAD skill are rusty to say the least but I'll give it a go and see if anything hatches.

What's the process to come out with a finished car or a car kit? Draft the plans,build a sample, then how do you get the production cars or kit parts built?.....dave

Well, that all remains to be seen. The first step is to create the CAD files. Once they're done, send them out for quotes. Everything from then on depends on the prices. I'm not sure about RTR - it would be much cheaper to leave assembly to the end user so most likely it would be kit form.
