Traction Modeling

Modeler: Scott Drake
Scale: HO
Description: All of my rostered trolleys have the ability to run either off track power or overhead wire via the pole hold-down clip/switch. With the pole extended, the car picks up power via the wire, when the pole is clipped down, the car picks up power from the track. The attached photo shows a converted Bowser Indiana Car to resemble Lehigh Valley Transit Car #1030 operating under live wire, next to LVT Jewett Car #802 painted in the correct early green paint scheme. To the right is a modified Bowser Brill Car painted and lettered as Fairmount ParK Transit #3 operating over the yet unelectrified Inner City Loop.
