HOn3 rerailer

Hi all, I have had a problem with putting my HOn3 locomotives and cars on the track.
On my standard gauge I used a plastic rerailer ramp.
It's a bit of an overhang on the narrow gauge equipment, so you can't easily grab the trucks to rerail them...
I heard that there was a commercially made rerailer ramp available, but I haven't seen one in many years.
I then designed this:

I designed it in Fusion 360 and printed it in PLA on my Wanhao Duplicator 4S.
It works really good:



I think I'll make it available on my Shapeways store... :)

I model HO and I have 2. They are great when changing cars on the layout. Folks modeling the narrow gauge will be mighty happy when they see this is available.

Thanks, I have uploaded it to Shapeways now.

It has some changes made to minimize the materials used (to reduce cost).
