The NMRA Bulletin ran a lot of articles on 1/2" trolley
modeling back in the early 70's. Articles included RTV
cast parts, axle hung motors for power trucks, overhead
They even had a "modular" system to let fellow modelers
set up outdoors.

>Quick reply, Harold! I am doing a model in 1:24 and the prototype has 24 inch wheels in a short wheelbase truck using Cincinnati archbar sideframes. No motor blocks I have seen will work for that and the mysteries of scratchbuilding power trucks from components still elude me. I will take another look at the NWSL website for 1 inch real diameter wheels to see what is out there, hopefully on axles for 2.5 inch gauge trackwork.
