Tram Building Service
Alan Kirkman offers a model tramcar building service in 3.5mm, 4mm and 7mm scales. Small scale trams etc. are built to your requirements.

They are supplied with OO gauge (16.5mm) spaced wheels. However, the units are designed to take wheels for any track gauge from 12mm to 21mm.
All the mechanisms are also available with wheels to fine scale tramway standards.
