Same with me:
The Blackstone Models are wonderful little things, and the sound really blasts you away, much more that I had expected from such a tiny engine... But I love the size and weight of On30, this is a bit more like the real thing, every step you go into the bigger scales brings you closer to the real Railroad...

Beeing a Railroader in profession here in Germany, I do have a Fn3 Bachmann Shay here on the shelf, just to look at and enjoy... If one asked me, I would desparately want to have a Bachmann Fn3 K-27 here too. This is a beauty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well done Bachmann.
Now we may deserve a smaller K-27 too, donīt we??? Tongue Tongue Tongue

Yep.  0-2-0's pulling 10 foot boxcars around a 12 inch curve seems to be what people want from On30.

 My modeling Brother, I think the they are referring to Porters & ore cars as far as all of the C&S and DRG goes I cant find squat for the stuff in my region. I see more "back east" RR here in the Midwest.  I aint letting up till they make one or they boot me off of here.  Wink

Good Morning All,

      Well,  having followed this thread for several days now,  and actually contributing earlier,  let me wade in again.
       One comment that has been made more than once is the one regarding Bachmann doing an engine already done by someone else.    So what?   How many versions of the GPs and F units are on the market and continue to be added to all the time?  A manufacturer has to decided on doing a model based on assumed sales.   
        Another thought brought up is the one of the size of equipment in On30.   Right now,  from things I read on the internet and in magazines,  this scale offers more variety to satisfy customers than any other scale.
        It is fun for me to listen to all of your input and continue to dream.   Keep it up.  Remember,  Dusten never got off his horse for a 4-6-0 and you see what happened there.
        Keep it up,  this is fun!!

Thanks Frisco - īd say AMEN....

Itīs not about a model already produced by others - as ebtbob already stated fully correctly about all those Diesels out there on the Market, itīs more that we would expect all these things not be built by MMI - all the correct versions available.

We got to dream on - hey: Its a hobby, its gotta be fun...
Well spoken bob and frisco and and and... Thanks folks !!! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I love the size for on30 but it is tempting because all those other scales have the models that I want. I just hope that ON30 one day has all those models too.

I hate to say it but this isn't quite the same in ON30 as it is in the other sales because there are less modelers in ON30 than HO N and O standard. One way they may be able to raise the sales is to offer it in ON3 also.
