Trucks & Bogies
mechanisms to power your trams
MOTORED TRUCK DESIGN BY TERRY RUSSELL
My trucks are fitted with 16mm and 12mm diameter 00 fine scale wheels and are intended for running
on Peco code 100 rails and may not perform well on proprietary tracks now available.
They are fitted with 12 volt DC motors ready to run on 32mm or 24.5mm track gauge.
I use two combinations of motor and gear sets in my motored trucks
- The LH21 motor and Ultrascale 21:1 brass/nylon gear set for light card and resin models. Overall
truck height of only 19mm [below the lower deck floor].
- The H1024 motor and Markits 30:1 brass gear set for exhibition running and heavier models. With
an overall truck height of 24.5mm these trucks protrude through the lower deck floor.
These motors have adequate power to propel a model tram and give better running
with modern electronic control. Bogie sets can be supplied with both trucks powered to special
order if required.
