Ive got 2 trams currently. One is a Tomix Portram, and the other is a Bachmann Brill trolley.
The brill has been modified to a more Melbourne look, Something between a Y and a X1 Type
The Portram has been painted in the Yarra Trams Livery, and is now showing off its new pantogrpah from Dapol, (The old one flipped)
|After...Seen running on the freshly dried tram lines|
I also found a new "Moving Bus System" by Tomix which is basically a affordable version of the Faller Car System. Although the Tomix system run on plastic sections of road that click together to make a loop. Me being me thought there had to be a better way, brought some magnetic tiger beading wire and was placed under my Scalescenes roading.
After a bit of trial and error (the card i printed the road on was to thick for the magnets on the bus) i now have the buses working fine.
The motorised chassis is about $40 which doesnt come with a body. but a few extra tires. you then have to spend about $45 for a 5 pack of low floor buses in different liverys. There is though... A "kit" of 4 older high floor buses (also by Tomix) that you put together and paint yourself for about $10 that also do fit on the same chassis, I brought both to show a new operator has brought the local buses and is modernizing the Fleet.

|It was tried. But the new livery doesn't look nice on the old Ones|
