Default Northeast NG 1:20 trolley plans/kit question

All:

Does the Northeast Narrow Gauge 1:20 four wheel trolley/streetcar have strait- vertical or tumbledown sides?

Thanks-

It has a tumbledown in the shape of a gently coved piece of wood used for the lower cabin wall. I have 2 of these NIB, havent built them but I have gone over the instructions and parts list.

I managed to pick up for under $20 one of the old old OLD versions of this kit (1:24 scale on 32mm/O track) while in NY last week. Sure enough, the instruction sheet dates to the 1980s.

It is a wonderful box of wood, nails, wire, castings and at one time held together by now dry-rotted rubber bands! Should be a neat kit to build, I will built mine in O gauge as a trailer for my Mamod.

Vic, is yours a 1:20 kit or 1:24? I wonder if they actually upsized it? I always had the idea of using discared horse cars/trams for passenger equipment as a few lines have in the past.

Another neat bit, the "artwork" on the box consists of stamps and a color photograph. Had a price list for some other kits in there too.

Wish I still had their 1986 catalog. I am sure it is in a box somewhere in Ohio in dad's basement.

Exactly. Once horse cars were no longer vogue, they found alternate uses. Nice photo BTW Brian!

Mine are the same as yours, 1/24 on O track, I was just going to widen the underframe and use Bachmann small diameter wheels.

I never intended to power mine, they were going to be passenger cars.

Well, when do you want to start building them?

Actually, I do have a spare set of Bachmann small wheels, leftover from my NENG boxcar kit. I did not use the big plated wheels that came with the kit.

I know this is an old thread but would any of you have the plans you would be willing to share?
I would like to build one of these and motorize it with the horses of course.
