Dear All,
BIG news!
Sir Topham Hatt has asked me to let you know that I have posted pictures of some new Large Scale items in the Photo Gallery.
Enjoy!

You scared me back there Bach-man, don't know why. Tongue 

Anyways regarding the pictures, they look great!  The 'Someone to look up to' gave me a chuckle there. Tongue  They look much better then the old Lionel ones they have made, the detail continues to amaze me.  It's a shame I don't model G scale though so I won't be able to join in on the fun of collecting these models.  Can't wait to see how they are going to be when they are done!  Same goes for Thomas and Percy.

Wow, now these look stunning. Not only do they appear to look like near-scale models, they also look pretty prototypical too, and I wouldn't be suprised if a few are "Cut'n'shut" to make Gauge 1 items.

I was abit worried that we would end up with something like the Lionel range, but I was wrong.

I think I might have to look for that LGB set I had for the track and controller...

i looked at the details and i see that the hook might be big enough for chains to put on, not saying to replace the couplers, but with the chains we might be able to connect the trains without a problem. anyone doubt on that?

The neat thing about G Gauge is that you can add tons of more details due to the large size. Bach-Man, you guys pass out the good word for me, they did an incredible job, the comparison was a very nice touch. So, whose house was this at?  Grin I'm kidding you don't have to answer that. You guys did a great job, and the captions were a nice touch as well.

As James from MOAB T&F series would say, "Shut my mouth!" Those models are absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!! The detail is perfect. When I first saw them I thuoght they were the actual TV models stripped from their paint. You could probably pass them for the real models. Like Santa Fe Bluff said since the models are larger, much larger then the HO, you can add more details. I can't wait to see what Thomas and Percy will look like. I'm hoping they'll have extremely accurate faces, and I'm sure they will. I know they will deffinately have better detail than the HO. My God I'm gonna pee my pants I'm so excited!!! It's a good thing my mom and I are making a garden railroad this year (well we're not entirely sure yet). Again  FANTASTIC models!!!!!!!  Cheesy

 well duh you cant leave bachmann large scale track outside. he'll probably use brass track.

my advice for brass track is to look around for decent prices. i'v seen packs of 20 cuves for as high as - i think- $130(?) . there is one website that has cheep track for - i beleive it was - 80(?)-100(?). i forget the web site. for agsact answers try to ask www.lsol.com

Yes, but do you know why?
Brass or Nickel Silver Rail will work fine. Nickel silver usually has better conductivity, but in any case you should solder jumper wires between joints. Aluminum Rail is cheapest but does not conduct very well.
