    If needed a steering wheel you can always use a train car brake wheel as a steering wheel

    Beautiful trucks! Seen a couple of pics of those fuel trucks, refuelling a loco on some branchline. Nice addition to Z scale!(y)

    Nice I’ve built all the previous vehicles. They have great detail easy to assemble and look great. I look forward to these new ones

    Ditto, that, Joe. I have built a nice little fleet of vehicles. I'm finishing up 2 1946 Dodge Power Wagons. I want to make one into a tow truck. I'm looking for the right pieces of scrap. Jim

    As you can see from the next 2 photos the cab and chassis are just about done, next comes the beds. The first one is going be for a propane tanker.

    The First release of the C series will be a 2 pack, propane truck + auto transporter.
    Here is a first look at the auto transporter minus the "payload".

    The "payload" is still in the 3D modelling stage and incomplete, here is a preview:
