The keys to the kingdom. Our good looking arch bar trucks are built like the prototype, with bent steel. Use them to build your own car. Includes bolsters for mounting to your car. Simple enough that anyone can assemble, but so well built they'll give you years of trouble free operations.

We're building this famous 23 ton Two Foot gauge locomotive built by General Electric for the Whitin Machine Works (later found on the Edaville RR). Essentially two powerful Generic Electric chassis under a heavyweight frame, this little beauty will haul lots and lots smoothly and quietly.

So successful is the Generic Electric, that folks are looking to repower their other locomotives. Or build trolleys. Or speeders. Or "what-have-you." Build anything that requires powered axles.
