Hi Oldman,

Very nice. Is that a one piece casting? I still don't fully understand this 3D printing lark.

Very neat - may I ask how much it cost and what work was involved (like did you have to provide drawings, or was that part of the service?)

It's a shame the N gauge couplings are so big - it's the one thing that distracts. Could you have a coupling at one end only?

Either way, I see this a pioneering work and I'm very impressed. Well done that man! :)

Yes it is one piece,Interior has boiler as well. All it needs is the Wheels which came off a Kato bogie I had lying around. OK it will be a static model unless I can sort out a motorised coach for it.  Detail is first class. :thumbsup: 
Richard (CRS) would be the one to explain 3d Printing.
Southernboy -I was looking at some other stuff(Nm3) on the site (Shapeways) and saw this and thought I had to have it to go with my tram stuff. $25.00 including shipping  by UPS from Holland.
