Here are a few small passenger sets by Tillig that could be used on a small layout.

Item #: 01561:

There are also various single cars and probably other sets as well.

So many good idea's. I never heard of that rail bus tell now! I'm really into this color scheme:

It reminds me of some things in Vancouver after expo 86. Something about it feels utilitarianism and very mechanical. I think I'm going to draw out some more plans, based on what I've learned... stay tuned for something to come out of those plans in the next couple months :D

Indeed. They nicknamed them "thunder boxes" due to the noise. The wooden seats weren't much comfort either. Also, that above rail bus only ever had 2 made. The one pictured and another with a more stylized front. The model is made by Kres and will be of excellent quality if my BR 175 is any indication.

For tighter curves other rail bus from Kres might be better, smaller motor unit with trailer. Excellent photos of the model are in 'TT Scale Models' section under 'Kres'.
