Thank you! That is exactly what I was talking about! I had absolutely no idea that these existed. Stunning to say the least. "And then depression set in" when I saw the price - ouch! It might not be so bad if I couldn't recall being able to buy a new car for less!  Grin

Seriously, thank you for taking the time to point that out.

Have you seen any of these? Do they in fact sound along the lines of a Model Airplane, or is the muffling sufficient such that there isn't that annoying 'buzz'?

Thanks again,

Thanks Paul.

>There are plenty of diesels available for the garden RR. Get yourself a copy of Garden Railways to start.

No...I meant real diesel power. A miniature version of the real V-16. Far fetched? Possibly. Could it be done? Sure. Costly? Oh yeah!   Smiley

This may sound patently absurd, but has anyone considered a scale diesel engine for these? I would imagine the cost would be prohibitive though....

Understanding the scales and track gauges in large scale can be confusing to some. Some folks, NMRA included, use G-Scale for several different scales running on 45mm gauge track.

The electric powered large-scale locomotives commonly found in the USA are produced in different scales but run on the same gauge track. Bachmann manufactures two scale proportions, 1:20.3 and nominal 1:22.5, both run on Gauge 1 (45mm) track.

Some of the links here will get you started.

Thanks Hunt!

           there are many largescale publications available, along with 'garden Railways' magazine, which is an excellent bi-monthly publication.

            Now,  I wonder whether you are actually simply trolling for new members with your website forum link on your posting name.  I do not think that this link is really essential if you are simply asking a very basic question,  which simple research could find out.

Thanks Tim. Nope, no trolling. Nonetheless, I have removed the Sig / URL.

I was unaware that Bachmann manufactured G-Scale products. While fairly well versed in O-Scale, I know little of G. Are there any good books out there relative to this Scale?

Many thanks!
