Paul Moore Trolley Car Plans

Paul Moore manufactured HO trolley cars and power trucks during the '40s and 50s. He also published HO scale trolley car plans. These plans are from a collection of his Pennsylvania cars. The links below are to Adobe .pdf files that when printed using Adobe's Acrobat Reader program should print to the correct size (full scale HO). (See the note at the bottom of this page for info on Adobe's Acrobat Reader software.) There are two measurements on each plan, the distance between truck centers and the height from railhead to roof top. Use these measurements to assure the scale of your printout is correct as two of the plans had to be reduced slightly to fit an 8.5" x 11" page.

Paul Moore used 9 1/4 by 12 inch paper to draw his plans. In order to print them full size on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet the drawings have been rearranged. Sometimes the drawings have been separated that had multiple cars on one page, on others things were just tucked closer together.

Our thanks to Charles Robinson and Bob Dietrich for making these plans available.
