I have been thinking, which is a new thing for me.

N gauge Trams, if I was mad enough to contemplate motorising some, what would be the best way of doing this??

I have done one of these.  It tends to rock forward and back and is hopeless on a slope.

The problem is the weight.

Check out the paper trams here

The old Matchbox Model of Yesteryear London E1 tram, later reissued as a Typhoo Tea model appears to be 8mm gauge as well...!

I remember seeing these motorised with Farish 4-wheel motor bogies.

The other possibility, if you don't want to hack a diecast model, is creating something from a Bachmann bogie Brill tram.

B H E do several trams which are slightly over width to fit either a Farish power bogie or  Lima  chassis ,the mould for one of them is being re done as its pretty well worn out .I will check with Ray while at Abingdon on Saturday.
