In response to popular demand Chris Bogus and I fabricated the standard gauge "Thomas" by combining  a McCoy drive mechanism with Bachman G scale parts.  I regauged the coaches by reversing the bearings, moving the wheels outward on the axles and creating clearances around the wheels. It runs beautifully on STD72 curves, but not on STD42 (haven't tried STD57 yet). It's a crowd pleaser! (But sadly not metal!)
