A 1:20 scale mogul might be small enough to use with 1:22 also! Good idea! Smiley

MAKE MY DAY!  How about a 1.20.3 Rio grande "SILVER VISTA" ??   I'm still waiting and I bet the Rio fans are too.  Your "k" was, and this may be the next star of the rails?

How about a Connie with a metal gearbox, like the Annie now has?

Hear Hear !  !!  !!

Better still a simple replacement chassis with metal gears for the Connie  so that those of us with stripped gear Connies can get them working again.

You see, I still think that the Connie is the best model that Bachmann has produced.

The Northwest Short line gear replacement for your Connie is a cheap fix at about $12 bucks, and so far have proven to be very durable with a much thicker web. The thin web on the original gear is what is breaking on the Connies.  It is an easy fix.  A whole new chassis with metal gears would almost as expensive as a whole new loco!!

I too, would love to have a "Silver Vista" along with a good sized turntable that can handle the K's

As for the Connie gear problem, get a BBT drive and forget about any problems.

If Bacchy is reading this, a covered grain hopper ( in 1:20.3) would be nice ?

Dear All,

".....a covered grain hopper ( in 1:20.3)"

Not sure putting up a link to different forum is kosher here...

So... use your favorite search engine on the term ' covered grain hopper "narrow gauge" '

If you see hminky's answer, you've found the thread I'm thinking of. 

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Joe Satnik

If your loco is too heavy to lift, you'd better be able to ride in, on or behind it.
