This is rail car number two in a series of ten.

This 3D printed train car (plastic wheels, axle and bed) fits O gauge track and opens the door to one of a kind train sets. The hexbug (available from amazon.com) runs around inside the car while the car runs around the track.

    nice :)

    smaller bed ends would have been nicer to increase the hexbugs movement range :)
