Why remove the paint?  Can't you just use a black paint pen over the white and red?

With all the grades and curves I think On30 would be excellent, imho.

As far as quality goes, over the last almost 30 years, I have purchased many, many of their large scale locomotives, shays, climaxes, heislers, rod locos, 45 tonners, davenports, etc., including their first radio controlled 4-6-0.  They have all run perfect out of the box and I have not had to have any repairwork done. Can't do much better than that!

I agree with Bill.  If there was a market for the Aristocraft loco's, then why did they go out of business?

Loco Bill,
The track you saw going around the planter was made by Aristocraft, it was four sections of 15 !/2" radius track that made the 31" diameter circle with their standard code 332 rails and ties.  A couple of years ago I sent you pix of my layout using this track. My Bachmann 45 ton diesels worked fine on this using Kadee couplers and the Davenport worked as well.
Take care,
Chuck

As usual, a nice video.
Thanks, Andrew
By the way, I haven't see your Chief Engineer lately (the cat).  Mine likes to "assist" me when I work on the trains.

Thanks, Fred;
Exquisite layout and great video.
Do you have any idea what the size of the layout is?

I'm with you, Doug;
Other large scale sites and Garden Railways seem to appreciate my Bachmann kitbashes/conversions.

Jorge,
Kitbashed car and pix look great. However, it appears to be large scale, not On30.
Moderator, can you transfer this to the large scale forum?
Thanx,
Chuck

On30gn15,
I made a new walkway, out of styrene plastic laminated to 1/8" plywood, the same width as the Bachmann 45 ton diesel and attached it to the frame of the MTH VO 1000 switcher. The 45 ton body just fits over the top of the MTH electronics and sound system.
Thanks for your interest.

Aah,
Good point, Bill. I did not end up with the lights being operable. In the future, I hope to get the marker lights and some kind of interior light working.
Incidentally, my current layout is 16'-8" long by 3'2" wide, hence the 16" radius curves so I can have continuous running.

All,
Regarding the vehicle situation, I just use the old Hubley kits, which I think were repackaged later under the Revell brand. These often show up at train shows and on auction sites.
They were 1/20 scale, easy to assemble, metal kits of cars from the 1920's and 30's.
