I just noticed (from pictures) that the 8L and 16L versions do not share the middle sections.
So I might have done some surplus sub-filing. Currently three of them, End, Middle and End-Middle section.
Looks very good. Though I doubt that the flat top on bars was worth modeling...

The flat part is "necessary" for the cart to roll. :-)
If the flat top is not there the wheel would intersect with the bar.

Then it was VERY worth ;D
Note to self: don't criticise without parts in hands!

That one makes it really versatile. To go up in a proper straight and not in an s-motion (like the monorail :-))

I did part 35700 from the Series 18 Figs and based it on 61780.

When doing the measurements they were slightly off, so I have made three versions, as seen in th epicture:

a) Yellow, based on the pure 61780 design (low line cout, just 47)

b) Orange, proper sized fingers for stacking (64 lines in subfile, plus 104 lines -> optimize to 64 in main Sub, 15 in finger sub, 60 in main file)

c) exact replica with quarter cutouts on the fingers (64 in main sub, 60 in finger sub, 68 in final file)

   

I would go for (b), what do you think?

Is it just me (I'm using my tiny phone screen) or the picture is missing?
Edit: Now using my computer - the picture IS missing Wink

OK, now I (finally!!!) do have the parts in hands and still don't see the need for the flat top: lower part of wheel is about 2 mm above the bars!
