Then you have to replace the entire headlight.
Ton

That is what I was referring to as it would seem to me to be easier just to replace the whole assembly.

I thought these headlights plugged into the body of the locomotive.

I, too, like cabbage stacks and was thinking of changing the stacks on most of my fleet. However, the standard gauge Challenger might just look a bit, well, strange! Grin

What other service are you using? I know of "Flicker" but have no experience with them. I closed my PB account when this started. Note that your photos may still be on Photobucket, just not linkable.

Thank you. That information cued up a latent memory but without the names. I am familiar with Q-Car and use a few of his products but he would want to replace the drive with his own. I just want the wheel flanges turned down to scale dimensions as there is nothing wrong with the WBB drive. At a Deland, Florida train show I remember talking to a fellow from Boston who had a couple of operating East Penn compatible modules there and asking him about the conversion. My mistake was not writing anything down. Again, thank you, I will be contacting them soon.

Sometime after the Witt was introduced, there was a person (in or near Boston, MA, I believe) that would convert these to scale wheels and pole to be able to run on scale layouts such as the East Penn Traction Club modules. Does anyone here remember who and if they are still doing it? Note that the wheels were not insulated for two-rail, the car runs off of the overhead wire.

Nice workmanship there. Gives me an idea for my 2-6-6-2.; oil-fired though.

I assume they're on the passenger car frames, from the pre-production sample I saw a while back in person...
They appear to be on a passenger car frame; there are cut-outs for the stepwells. I checked it against a passenger car and a boxcar; definitely a passenger car frame.

Great! Let us know how it looks when you get it.
It arrived yesterday and looks nice. No pictures as it looks exactly the picture in the Bachmann catalog (and I am lazy!!). Included in the box is a
postcard-sized memorial to Lee Ryan. I do like it.

I just got a call from Trainworld that the excursion cars are in and ready to be shipped; my car is on the way.

Same here.

Try to find hopper cars or the side door caboose. 

This past weekend at the Dayton train show I picked up a sealed box of two Midwest Quarry hoppers for forty dollars. The vendor had a few hundred On30 items available. The stuff is out there.

I bought that same set with the idea of converting the trailer to a small single-truck trolley. Alas, the car is too small even for that so it will stay a railbus trailer. Sad

I have one of those and took it over to a friend's HO layout to see how it ran:

We were both impressed.
The 2-6-0 did even better:

Well, except for a slight problem when we went to spin it:

The WBB Scale GG-1 will run on 042 minumin curves, of course looks better on 054 or wider. I would like a scale version of the as built 4899 paint scheme.

Even on O-72 it does not  look good:

Headlight pointed towards Chicago, coupler pointed towards St. Louis!  Grin
