Siku Luas

Recommended Posts

Spotted these in Symths toys store today while looking around for a Christmas present.

The model it's self is a great build & high quality, tho, because it is a German built train by Siku, the unit is a German train in the Luas tram livery. I think it fits TT gauge track. It is Siku product No. 1646 "Nahverkehrszug/Local train/ Train de banlieue"

 

See Siku.de for more information

 

Unfortunately the images won't load.

Ah, thank you Mr/Mrs BosKonay, just couldn't get it to work earlier.

 

Indeed, it's not bad looking at all (I grabed one for the price shown)

you just made my Christmas tony.

Was only trying be polite & not offend as I do not know if the person in question (or even a robot) is a Madam or a Sir, but I'm glad to hear that I have made your Christmas :)

 

 

Craven1508,

I think it'll take more than a bit of tinkering, as the model is smaller than your usual HO/OO stuff, plus the fact the bogies on it don't swing at all, in fact the only things that do move is the couplers & the wheels that turn, but, if your going tinker it, why not the extra mile & hack it so the middle has its own carriage like the ones IRL, I'm sure you could do this cheaply by buying another two (three in total) & use the couplers from the spares, & any left over wheels, you could use on a 1/76 road digger to turn it into a RRV.

 

Did I mention that Siku make a even smaller version of this model with same size of couplers in a red park & ride livery? No? Well, just as well I just did ;)

^it may come in handy.
