Mr Rogers would approve! Nice work. Thanks for creating and sharing reactron :)

By any chance are there any additional STL files available for this project? Just watched the latest documentary about him and definitely want to print myself a trolley! Not as familiar with F360 to split up the parts on the great design you've made.

Sorry ukcat - not at this time. I would eventually like to bring this out into the real world, but for the time being it exists only in the Land of Make-Believe. :) If you put this thing on your watchlist, you will be given notice if I (or someone else) get around to breaking the design up into printable parts.

Thanks for your fast reply, but I did figure it out after posting.....just saved each component as an STL and looking forward to starting the prints. Thanks for your great work!

Thanks - you have quite a library of excellent designs, as well, Mr. Cat. I have printed out the trolley roof but I soon realized that the pillars and posts were going to be way too small and flimsy if they're printed - my future plans for this design is to make the posts out of square wooden dowels and the front pillars out of brass rods. I'll need to add in the appropriate negative areas on the roof and trolley body for ease of assembly and strength. I also want to add a real motor assembly and develop a control system for it, but I'm going to have to eat a lot of Wheaties to work up the ambition. :)

I look forward to following this project! Fred Rogers meant the world to me as a child and I can't wait to build this. Thank you!

Great idea! Looking good so far.

Thanks, Mr. Olsen!
