Title: Tokyo Disneyland 30 inch gauge locos
Post by: norman on December 22, 2016, 12:31:02 AM
Hi Mr. Bachmann:

Is there any chance of Bachmann producing models of the Tokyo Disneyland 30 inch gauge locos?

This would be a perfect fit for track gauge.

Wow.   That would be a great loco.

Fingers crossed.

They sure would make for a great model to freelance for the non-Disney types.
I'd think you could even use the existing 4-4-0/4-6-0 On30 running gears Bachmann already makes, even though the wheelbase would a little off?
I took this shot on the steam shop tour in 2011...

That would make a great train set to sell at the Disney locations and by the way it would look great pulling those new 18' freight cars.

They were a non powered plastic kit, made by Tomy in the 1980s.  I don't believe very many were imported into the USA.  There has been one on ebay for $180.00, which I believe is a little high.  The loco shown on the link may have been painted a brass color,or cast in brass from the plastic parts.  It is very close to On30.  Some modelers have done free lance powered conversions.

Those locomotives might not be a bad idea. Not just for regular On30 modelers, but also for those folks looking for an "old time" train for their snow villages.
