X traveller car.

Post by jpa_wfsc » Sun Mar 29, 2015 8:34 pm

traveller Car needed for 'x' track.

Alternatively a 2 foot ish traveller complete with a car, any make considered.

It exploded a few years ago, and the boat (Skol Moth MkII) is not happy without it! That was a moment - Gybe - bump - plop!! That was a big fish - capsize - no it wasn't it was some of my boat!!

Hi John,
Any idea what make the original traveller was i.e. Holt, RWO, IYE, Fico etc?
I might have something that would fit, but it would help to know either the make or the dimensions of the track.
A photo or sketch of the end of the track might help me identify the manufacturer so that I can hunt around for a matching car.
Regards
Ian

I have been offered a traveller with car - much thanks to Graham - so hope to have the Skol back in original condition asap.

Thanks for all the help with this.

Hi John,
It sounds as though you're sorted now with the track and car from Graham.
I had a look at your pics on facebook and the track you have doesn't match any of the examples I have, however, the concave upper surface looks similar to the IYE track. It may well be an earlier version that was gold anodised unlike the later silver version that I have. Anyway, I have found three different cars that might fit your existing track: IYE, Ermat and RWO. If you want to try any of these before you start drilling holes for a new track then please let me know and we can work out a way of getting them to you.
Cheers
Ian

Hi John

If you want to email me, I can send you pictures of the track. They are too big to upload here.
