 Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes
    On this bridge I have been looking at it and I agree with the height being a little to tall. What I planned on doing was to go in and cut between down girders and the bottom beam taking out some of the height. then regluing it to the main bottom beam and shorting the length of that beam. then repainting the bridge.
     Just my thoughts, what do some of you think.

 Hi Max
  I agree with you on the cabs from Banta and their products are well worth the money, but what I wanted is the steel cab that comes from Bachmann.
  Anybody out there has one that is willing to get rid-ed of it, email off line. I will be away from the computer a lot this week so bear with me please.
 Happy railroading

 Hi All
  Has anyone replaced a Bachmann steel cab for a wood cab on the Bachman wood cab climax version?
  Just had a idea and wondering if I would keep that in the back of my mind for a up grade later.
  Thanks, happy railroading and may there be a lot of On30 under the tree this year.

   Hi All
 Just wanted to let you all know, that I start the two days of test today for the Cyberknife operation to be next week.
 The good news is that after the fall, that found the cancer had gone to my brain and there was a lot blood in pictures. The doctors waited to see if there would be any clearing up. Well there was to a lot clearing and the Doctors could not believe how much. Instead of massive tumors. They found two little nodules and we are all go to try to even get both nodules at the same time.
  I would like to take this time to thank the people who thought and prayed for me these few weeks.
  Also a spcieal thanks to the Bachmann corp. and it's fine employees, here is wishing them a great Hoiday Season and a Merry Christmas.

  The only reply again on this subject will to let you all know how everything goes after recovery.
   Happy Railroading to all

  Hi J D
 Yes I will most likely look into altering one of my Bachmann log cars to look like the Ely Thomas car. When you come into my home the frist thing you would is two large scale shays on display. With the shay model done so good by Bachmann I wanted the car to look as good to go with each other.
  Thanks again J D

Hi  Brian
   Sorry you feel that way. Let me say this though. All the G scale that I have is Bachmann, except one Porter LGB engine that was a gift.
    At one time there was to be a garden railroad, but that was not to be.
    I am not going into what I have but I am sure that the Bachmann would be very happy with the money that I have spent over the years purchasing their fine products.
     I happen to enjoy logging and have collected shays from them in all scales and right now working getting a large scale 3 truck shay to place on display in my Home. This a long with all the On30 equipment. Which when the On30 layout I am now working on, which will be most likely 98%  Bachmann rolling stock and right now 100% engines.
     Like I said I just looking for help if any of the fine modelers new of a place out there could help. Right now $100 is hard to spend for a one car on fixed income when the railroad has so many projects going on. If I could not locate a better price, the car will just have to wait longer, maybe to next Christmas to be here under the tree.
     Again if I upset you, I am sorry, that I did.
 Happy railroading

 Hi all
  On one of the web site's (BachmannOn30) they were taking about detailing the Bachmann On30 2-6-0, and there was this engine done by Les. Les' s it was a beauty, well done. Any way I thought I might share here what I did about 7 years ago. before you had the after market parts.

 

  Hope you enjoy. Yes I am hooked logging first and the narrow gauge second.
 Happy Railroading

Hi
 I would stay with the 18" curve. I have four different sets and the running of and looks is a whole lot better even at 18", better would be at 22".
 You are the one who will have to make that desecion.
 If you were running thr small Porters etc, 15" would look great even a smaller curve would work great. There is another question. What cars are you pulling freight or passenger, their again you get into looks and also coupler funtions over the curves. What you might do if you do not mind the money spent is to pick up a pack of Atlas 15" curve track (4 pc pack) and just see if you want to go that way. You also need to ask your self is this just a one time set up at say Christmas or are planning on  leaving it set up to run when you want to.
  Hope this gives you some ideas to think over.
  Happy railroading

  Hi All
  I love large scale also!
 Now to what going on with me and the doctors appointment today.
  Well everything is rolling right along the Lord is taking care of everything you can tell all through this His hand is there.
  First of all the cancer that is now in my brain. Does appear to be a new breakout and has not been there long time. It has gone from being three to one massive tumor to two small nodules.
  Now for what is going to be done.
  I would like to say here that my family and I really want to thank all of you for your prayers and thoughts.
  I now will not have to face a operation. For now that has been ruled out as need at this point. Great news!
  The radiation has been ruled out too! More great news.
  Well then what are we going to do. Cyberknife Radiosurgery yes, the nodules are small enough to even be done at the same time they believe. Talked with one of the doctors that will do me and he told me that the procedure as gone on others better than he had ever believe. The computer that controls the operation comes from Germany, and was develop to build cars on their assemble line till some smart person took the idea to control other equipment and computers. I just have to say here we know Who gave man the gift of thought, reason, and ideas.
 Any way the rest of the week will be to run test for them to get me ready for the big day. They to have to map out my head for the best path to follow and get the exact location. when that is done the team of doctors will look at a and make sure of the best path to go. I fell like I am on space mission the way this is going down.
 If everything goes to plan right now it will take place on Dec. 07, a Friday, and last only 45 mins to one hour and 15 mins depending on how I move and if I have to get up for some reason. the good news is that this smart machine will know and reset check and go back to were it stop and start again at the correct place.
 Again I want to thank everyone for the support that I have gotten from the groups.

 One more note the work on the On30 logging layout is coming along and hope to have the second section tided in this weekend. When that is done I will post pictures and up date. One section will be removable for a module to go to shows and set up with other groups of modules.
 So North Carolina and others stay tuned.
  Thanks To All

  Thanks to all
 I had a brain freeze, but went on the NRMA site and found the conversion was .591 inches. That works out to .591 X 20' = 11.82 inches and that is close but workable.
 Thanks again. I model in On30 scale mostly, but collect shays in different scales. Well to tell the truth jump around, been every scale except Z. I did thank about Nn3 gauge, but it was to small for me to handle. I do have a 3 rail system that run around the ceiling. Thanks from the foreman and me.
