    Default N scale riding mower

    Anybody ever come across one? I see that Faller makes one that's motorized and actually drives around, but that's a bit more than I need

    Thanks!

    I painted mine to look like my cub cadet.



    Looks better when not so close-up...

    Here's another eBay link for N scale mower. (Figure not included)

    Mark,

    Railway Express Miniatures makes a riding lawnmower. It comes in a "Recreational Detail Set" and N Scale Supply has it listed on their website.

    http://www.nscalesupply.com/REM/REM.html

    You will need to scroll to the bottom of the page.

    Thanks, guys. That Railway Express jobber is just what I'm looking for. And I'm sure I can find uses for the boats and snowmobile too

    Okay, from what I see, Faller 232212 is no longer in production and no one else has one. Ah, well. I was thinking of putting it on a timer and push button as one more interactive thing for kids at shows. Getting the motor sound would be easy.

    Looks like there is one here, if you can figure out the country/language ...

    or if you want to deal with Russia and can figure out how to order it ...

    This one seems pretty pricy and comes from UK ...

    The moving riding mower is probably another version of the dancers/ice skaters. A magnet on the bottom of the mower is attracted to another under the surface. Pretty easy to duplicate. The tough part is the roughness of the grass. Not so hard if driving on pavement.

    it might make a great snow scene if a plow is added to the front of the mower. Another variation would be a someone pushing a gas mower, the mower itself being a carved magnet.
