009 scale transporter wagon
This was always going to be an exercise. There is one critical set of measurements involved: 1. the gauge of the standard gauge wheelsets, 2. the swing of the naturally over scale 009 bogies. The picture tells all. Even with opening the wheels out to a generous +P4 18mm b2b and filing lumps off the corners of the bogie it ain't going to work. Grunt....

Back to the other project in hand at the moment.

  1. Only way I can see that working is to use inside framed bogies as per the Lilliput(?) H0e model.......that would win quite a bit of extra clearance.
    The wheels on the one I had were tiny, almost like rollers......made it a bit lower for better c of g.
    Parkside probably do them.
