    Hi Rob,

    Thanks for your post. A fair bit of restoration work required on the cable car carriage. They got a good price for it.

    thanks for all your information. An enjoyable part of doing these builds is learning the history.

    Most appreciated.

    Regards

    Keith

    There were horse drawn trams in Melbourne also.
    Google "Horse drawn trams in Melbourne" to bring up some links.

    Hi all,

    Have done a bit more on my tram. The framework beneath each end has been made out of aluminium. The entry ends and control cab base has been made out of Pine and MDF. Slow but I am happy with the progress

    Very interesting!
    Love the metal base will be a lot stronger.
    How thick is the wood base for the main platform?

    Thanks Bruce,

    It's 6mm MDF. The "Channel iron" is made out of pine with the channel cut out on the table saw. Just for looks but also helps prevent some warping.

    Regards

    Keith
