    Another supplier for the heavy traction guys.

    Model Memories has catenary poles, catenary bridges, 3rd rail hanger kits and photos of heavy electric layouts, and city details like light poles, fire escapes and venetian blinds.

    Retriever parts

    Hi all: I am a newbie here. Busch has a new paint scheme for the HO scale GMC new-look fishbowl bus, it is the "environmental paint scheme" as used on an Edmonton, Alberta BBC/GMC trolleybus. I want to turn one of these Busch units into an Edmonton trolleybus; and, if I am lucky to power it with a Faller Car System propulsion system. The trolleybus line will supplement my streetcar routes.

    I will be going to those parts sites in this thread later on but I thought I'd ask as maybe some one can short cut my search.

    All for now, Swamp Daddy :rolleyes:

    Hey there Swampdaddy - welcome to the Gauge! :wave:

    Glad to see your first post was in our Traction forum. I think your powered trolleybus is a brilliant idea!!! :thumb: Keep us posted on your progress with it - I would love to see how it works out.

    Retriever parts

    Welcome Swamp Daddy.

    The only retriever parts that I am aware of in any scale are offered by Light Rail Products in G scale:

    http://www.lightrailproducts.com/index.html

    http://www.lightrailproducts.com/006-010/006.trolley.catcher.htm


    On the HO trolleys Customtraxx painted and detailed for me, the retriever is just a small hunk of styrene.

    I'll give you a couple of O scale suppliers as trolley coach retrievers are sometimes oversize compared to streetcar retrievers. Q scale does offer a couple of retrievers, but one model is out of stock.
