Hey BJ102,
  You can run your trolley on an HO track with a stanbard transformer
With no modifications or problems. I Do this sometimes to just let them unwind.

Enjoy,

Hi nzreg,
  Welcome to the wonderful world of On30.
Bachmann made 4 different Jackson & Sharp passenger cars. The Coach, Combination Mail/passenger,
Observation with the observation deck off the back, and the 2-door baggage cars. The observation car is only available from the On30 sets. A lot of the early sets do not have a 2-door baggage car in that road name. This car was released after these liveries were discontinued.
Hope this info is helpful.

Enjoy,
   Barry

Jarosz,
    Welcome back to "the worlds greatest hobby".
 I think you might try hooking both turn outs to the same switch.
This will throw both at the same time if that is what you wanted.
Enjoy,

Bj102,
    Your trolley will run on any loop of track.
 It will be under that controllers use to make the stops and adjust speed.

Just 1 more "Helpful Hint" Coupling and un-coupling is best done on a straight piece of track, not on a curve.

I use only EZ magnets. The real trick is to make sure you do not have forward tension on the coupler as NO magnet will release a tight coupler. There must be slack or no tension on the coupler for any magnet to work properly. Take the time to do it right as most people try to rush every thing these days.


Enjoy,

Slim,

   Try Southside Trains at 3979 South Howell Ave. just a little north of the airport. Phone 414-482-1566. Tom just moved there from a further south location he had been in for a few years.    http://www.southsidetrains.com/
If you are on the north west side of town try Summerfeldts in Butler.    http://www.sommerfelds.com/

TK,
    A few yyears ago dept 56 bldg had  last commisioned Bachmann to do On30 Trains for them. They were very pricey but did look really good, nicely detailed great colors... hard to find as out of production a few years. Occasionally e-bay will have one. I would (and do also run) On30 around my village and also have an On30 trolley running through town. Looks great.

Enjoy,
   Barry

B65,

I think the red brick barn is the older version and the cream city brick barn is the new version.

Carman 761,
   Have you tried to flip the switch. I had one that sometime the bumper switch would get bumped to the middle and it acted like neutral. Just a suggestion.

Enjoy,

I have seen these beautiful li'l classics. Bachmann had them at Traifest in Milwaukee just this last weekend.
I was extremely impressed. They fit right in with the woodsided dump cars.
I am quite sure most On30 enthusiests will also be impressed.

     On another note I would like to send a HUGE THANK-YOU to Bachmann for investing further into this Scale. With the economy the way it is they could just say it's not worth it. Thank you
    One mmore note of thanks to the Bachmann, lee Riley and the several other Co. Reps who spent their weekends away from home and Families to support our interests. THANKS for tthat sacrifice.

Enjoy,
  Barry
