As per n2r's request. I have added the very simple wagon pole. It just glues into the front under carriage and the eveners for a two horse hitch. You can use these with the my plow horse to "hitch" a two horse team.
Wow! I am impressed. You are working at the lower limits of the current printers. I.e. typical strands are at ;4 mm and software demands at least two thicknesses per print wall. Given a certain amount of squish between those walls we are looking at a 1mm limit to resolution. I'd like to see your print. What printer are you using?
Anyway thanks for the comment. I'l post the tongue and eaveners in a day or two. They are very simple.
I am working on the Ringling Air Calliope Wagon No. 2 from about 1920. Got an impressive high relief skyboard. Messing with quarter and half inch scale models while in the design model. I'll check our HO when the model is complete. And...I think I'll leave the N up to you.
Thanks for the comment.
need the wagon tongue, very nice kit. I even printed it in N scale

Instructions

The files are scaled at a quarter inch per foot. (The wagon was 15' long.) I greatly simplified the undercarriage for ease of printing. This also approximates O gauge. The wagon had rubber wheels at the time the plan was drawn. In an earlier time it might have had steel rimmed wooden wheels Undercarriages and wheels should be printed with the detailed side up and may be printed without raft or supports if you printer allows. Details are down when they are glued to the body. Super glue wheels to the axels.

“The Little Circus Wagon” is a publication of Circus Model Builders International. Autodesk 123D Beta is a wonderful free CAD program that unfortunately will not be supported after December 31 in favor of a much simplified program. The Commissary served as the general store for the circus workers who often found themselves far from any town.

The lettering for the model is in two sizes, ¼ inch per ft. and 1/8th inch per ft.

Great horses and elephant too! Please upload those files if you are able as well.
Just posted the Pushing Elephant model. Thanks again for the suggestion.
Just posted the plow horse model. Thanks for the suggestion.
I'll work on it. Both are hybrid models starting with DAZ Studio/Poser models substantially cleaned and modified in 123D Beta. This makes them difficult to print on some machines. I don't like to post until the models are pretty solid;
