I read years ago, the minimum mainline radius equates to a 10' radius in OO scale.
So to model something accurately, you would need a lot of space.

Tim Warris modelled his HO scale layout on the CNJ Bronx Terminal & it is to scale.
It's absolutely brilliant & I could write reams on every tiny detail, but it's still only a freight yard.

Tim Warris has something extraordinary there. Only a freight yard, yeah, but what a yard! Great website as well http://www.bronx-terminal.com/

BUT: MMI did not make the 455 after wreck and only by Southwest Narrow GaugeŽs efforts they will eventually make one. I would go and sell all my MMI mudhens if Bachmann would make one. IŽd go for a 453, 456, 463 and the 455 RGS past wreck, though...  Smiley

Even if the prototypes never existed, someone would have created Model Trains anyway.

Thank you Mark,

a while back I spoke to Bruce about the 455 after wreck. I did not check about this engine the last time, but the RGS mudhen did really become real!

Ok, all these MMI Models are kind of "black box". Some run fine, some donŽt. Heck, IŽd rather buy one from Bachmann or even replace all my MMI models by Bachmann models if they would once built them.


Cheers, Tom

Luckily for me Tom, all my MMI locos run fine.

I am surprised Bachmann have not built  any of the K's or C's.
I'm sure they'd be big sellers.
I'd like a C-25 & was disappointed when MMI cancelled their project.

Cheers.

Mark,

my Mudhens run fine. I first had issues with my K-36 and that was the reason I dropped the idea to buy a K-37...

But I did build a C-25 and two C-21 from Bachmann Connies. Just fine runners...

Cheers, Tom Smiley
