As previously mentioned on here, I wanted to check out converting Bachmann
On3 to 3 rail O gauge, to fill the huge gaps in product offerings. First and easy
was a combine quickly mounted on 1930's Scalecraft archbar trucks with large
flanges. Next, with the time available, I just did a test fit of Keystone Loco.
Works logging archbars with tinplate wheelsets under the tender of the Bachmann T boilered Shay. That looks workable, but the fun part will be
converting front truck and making all operate. Did not find the car particularly
ungainly, any more than a Sierra coach or the shorty combine behind the
Hercules steam dummy in Mammoth Cave Nat. Park. I am sure someone ingenious out there will beat me to getting a Shay three railed.
??Another one of THOSE!!?? What you want to sell is not what I want to buy!
