Thanx Tony,
Does it pick up power from the rear truck or is it just a dummy coach bogie.?
2  Discussion Boards / N / Bachmann N DCC fitted Doodlebug on: February 13, 2013, 09:42:02 PM
Hi Guys,
Not an N scaler, but I do work in HOe NG on 9mm track and I'm looking for a chassis for a bogie railcar.
I wonder, could anyone, please, tell me the overall length over body ends of the Bachmann Doodlebug ?
If possible in mm please.
Frank Savery,

3  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: 2012 On30 wish list on: March 09, 2012, 09:11:46 AM
Hi Guys,
Naturally, as I'm frpom Tasmania, I'd love a Tasmanian Garratt,
I think thats, almost certainly 'A Wish Too Far"  Smiley
But, hopefully, a wish that's within the realms of possibility would be for a On30 version of the HO scale Jackson Sharp Open-Sided Excursion Car with Seats.

Hi all,
I'm thinking about doing an On30 diesel kitbash using the new Bachmann Alco S4 loco as a basis.
Can anyone please tell me if :
The footplate/hood/cab

Thank You,

5  Discussion Boards / On30 / Fitting decoder to DCC-Ready Shay Loco on: April 09, 2011, 03:24:42 AM
I just purchased a Shay loco on E-Bay - Didn't think to check, I just assumed that ALL On30 Shays had factory fitted DCC.
Now I see it's only DCC ready - Can anyone tell me what decoder harness I need, I prefer to use TCS decoders If I can, failing that Digitrax.
6  Discussion Boards / On30 / Catching Up - What developments have there been in Bachmann On30 on: January 02, 2011, 08:13:45 AM
Hi Guys,
I've been out of On30 for a couple of years, so I'm just catching up with what's Gone on (or rather, not gone on!). Smiley Maybe it's all to do with the financial crisis and recession, which I know has been a lot worse in the US and Europe than in Australia, where it's all passed us by with very little effect.

Looking through the online catalogue, the pace of things seems to have slowed right down and apart from the SRR&RL type Caboose and a  artic loco, very little seems to be new.

When I was last reading these pages there was talk of Porters with DCC On Board and maybe even sound, a Davenport with sound on board, a "bigger" diesel loco and an Excursion Car~ has anything been happening with these projects ? ~ or was it just wishful thinking ? Did those plans for On30 rolling stock from Brazil ever come to anything ?

Any info much appreciated,
Cheers, Frank Savery
in sunny (albeit damp Australia).

Is there any difficulty in fitting a basic decoder to the HO MAVIS & TOBY Huh?? I don't suppose they are "DCC Ready" but are there any issues with having to insulate the motor ??

Apologies for using/abusing thew forum for this.
Dear OGREditor,
Could you possibly get in touch with me direct at:

I've tried three different computers with 3 different internet connections, but I just cannot get on to your website to find out how I can order a copy of your Oct/Nov special NG issue.

Frank Savery,

Hi all,
I'd suggest the existing or future steel Flat Car fitted with end bulkheads and a removable (cross - stacked) pulpwood load.

Dear OGReditor,
Can you give a UL that works, please.
 A Google search finds O Gauge Railroader "" but then it's a dead end and internet explorer can't display it.

Hi all,
To quote an old British Army song ~ "Oh, why are we waiting, oh, why do we wait ..............." Grin

The French Voie Metrique website,see :

managed to post photos of the new On30 Bachmann items while the Anaheim show was still on ~ almost two weeks after it finished the Bach Man STILL hasn't managed to post any photos of them taken at Anaheim !
 Shocked Shocked Shocked

SURELY, the time for secrecy is now past !!!


15  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: Outside frame 4-4-0?! on: July 29, 2008, 11:40:15 PM
This message is directed to Nick Burman in Sao Paulo, Brazil and I apologise foir using the list to contact him.
Hi Nick,
I'm very interested in the possibilities of modelling the whole OdeM/VFFCO line not just the Bachmann OF 4-4-0. From the photos I've been able to find it looks to have been a fascinating line. I wonder If you know of any publications on the line, books or magazine articles?

Perhaps you could reply off list to avoid abusing the Bachmann's priviliges.
Thanx, Frank Savery in Tasmania, Australia
