Corgi have produced a beautiful diecast end-door Feltham tram model in OO gauge 1:76 scale in their Original Omnibus Company series of models. The first production model OM40501 Feltham Tram in London Transport livery was released in January 2002 and further liveries, such as Leeds City Transport, Metropolitan Electric Tramways and London United Tramways are available.
BEC-KITS have produced a specially adapted Motorising set for the Corgi Feltham tram which provides a simple method of motorising the tram for running on standard model railway track, such as that made by PECO.
The set contains 2 motorised ready-to-run maximum traction bogie units in 16.5mm OO gauge, wired for 2-rail pickup, with special bolsters and illustrated instructions on how to fit them into your Corgi end-door Feltham.
This photograph shows the motorising set fitted into the black plastic chassis pan of the Corgi London Transport Feltham tram and also fitted with the black plastic truck sideframes taken from the Corgi Feltham tram. The brown plastic seating unit inside the Feltham has been cut down to leave just the two end platforms and staircases.
