I don't seem to be able to get the link to open and a search hasn't turned it up (or I'm not looking for the right thing). I have watched the youtube link, found ZeCar on Amazon and keen to have a go - but not sure where to start. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is an old thread copied over from when the forum was hosted by myfreeforum.org so links may be broken.

Can you let me know what you are trying to view so I can fix the original post(s).

Hi
I was trying to reach this thread - but I'm actually more interested in how you went about getting the Zee Car into a wagon. The whole concept of an inertia wagon is new to me. I'm aware of the SloMo product much much more interested in building a wagon based one. I'm happy to kick this off as a new thread if necessary.

Here is the thread that Keith mentions:

And my unfinished wagon being tested:


The benefits of having one is well worth the cheap price of a Zee Car!

This thread covers many builds:

I have moved on to the SSP Slomo and it's far superior product without the need to have a dedicated wagon, you can light engine at a realistic speed as well.

Thanks! - that was exactly what I was looking for. Zecar has been ordered although build up is low down the priority list!

Some time ago I built a 'momentum wagon' using the Zecar and showed it in my thread, 'Time to build a railway etc...' It ended up as a box van and looked perfectly OK although was a little noisy with the body acting as a sound box. The build went something like this...

Even with the foam insulation it was still noisy but it worked well. I no longer run steam locos, RC battery only, so I sold it on.
The best things in life are free.... so why am I doing this?
