Auckland Trams

 
  Toroa Beginner

Hello everybody this is my first post so "welcome on board". Anyway, I am making a 1:120 Scale layout with a Railway system and tramway (currently in planning) and I am wondering if any of you have plans of Auckland Trams? I am going to attempt to build the entire fleet (well one of each class) Thanks in advance!

I know nothing about Auckland Trams but a search yielded this

http://homepages.paradise.net.nz/barry-m/

where the owners of a 1:32 layout have modelled an Auckland Brush built boxcar tram. They must have used a diagram. There is an email at the top of the page (barry-m@paradise.net.nz) so I would hope it is current.  A search of Google images showed a tram plan as you need, I suspect of a Christchurch tram, which is how I got the link.  

Hope this helps and good luck with the building!


Cheers


Trevor

What about contacting MOTAT in Auckland? I think they have maps of the Auckland tramways and preserved Auckland trams.  

Also there is the Trams Down Under email list see http://tdu.to

I'd love to see some photos of your layout.

Hey everyone, I did contact MOTAT But none of the plans have been digitized but now I have managed to get plans!

Thanks Trevor, and also some other people who have given me some other plans.

Currently my layout is in the planning phase, right now I am trying to find out how to make points.

G'day, as I know from a german friend, there were some Auckland N-class kits (etched, brass) obtainable from:

City Depots Models c/o Mr. Ian Robertson, 136A Amberley Ave, Palmerston Nth. 4412 (NZ).
