Hello folks, I'm a new comer to railway model, I'm looking for a bogie that can carry one or more OO scale bus model, is there any available on the market? I have an OO gauge Hornby Class 50 now

Hi Dennis, welcome to the forum.

You want a bogie wagon that can carry a load of a bus?

Hornby do a car carrier (R6143), not sure if it can take a bus...



I don't think Bachmann do anything like this. You may have to find a specialist manufacturer.

If you are talking about moving buses by train there were a number of movements using weltrol type wagons in the 40's and 50's. I know East Kent vehicles on loan to the government were moved this way when requiring maintenance.

Any use?

Regards

John

The Hornby's one looks good but can the cars be removed from the wagon? is it wide enough to place a bus?


The one from Trix looks good but the length is quite tight for my buses in term of OO, I think it can fit a Leyland Titan B15 (9.5m) at most, the bus models I have are mostly 11m-12m


Initially I was thinking to use Bachmann's intermodal for bus transporter and the price is quite bargain the only problem that I concern is they have too many holes on the chassis


I think these are good but don't know where to find them:

I'm not aware of buses moving by rail in Britain in recent decades. Certainly it would only ever have been possible with a single decker , and even then I can understand why a weltrol (with a lowered centre) would have been used

Much the same applied to tanks - special Warwells were used
