Models of Trams (streetcars) made by Barry and Colin. All are completely scratch built, to the scale of 1:32 and run on 45mm track (handlaid using HO rail with the sleepers removed and the base built up to represent street scenes.),not garden railway track.
Hi, I have just found that some of my photos have vanished from Britmodeller. These were linked to photos on my website which has now been deleted by Vodafone NZ. I thought that Britmodeller copied the files, but it now appears that they were only linked. Is this correct, or have I made an error somewhere? TIA Barry
Hi, My modelling interest is in modelling trams, mainly those of Christchurch, NZ. As a child I rode them frequently until the system was closed 1954. Perhaps my fondest memory is that of riding behind Kitson No 7 with two trailers in 1950 when it was recommissioned for Christchurch's centennial celebrations. It was run between New Brighton and North Beach on mainly abandoned track, and at the end of each day, with its two trailers fully laden, followed a service car back to town and then to the shed at Moorhouse Avenue. Later that year the exercise was repeated at the end of the Sumner line, but this time between service trams . I will take my model apart to photograph it due course for those interested The scale of all my models is 1:32 and the gauge 45mm. Electrical pickup is basic 2 rail with dummy overhead. BTW the prototype still runs on the Ferrymead tramway and is to receive a newly reconditioned boiler in the 'near' future. Barry
