1  Discussion Boards / Large / Re: Any chance on the new HO trolley making it to Largescale? on: September 14, 2007, 07:55:27 PM

Now we get into the "What Scale Should It Be?" problem.

Bachmann large scale is 1:20.3 if it is Spectrum, but 1:22.5 if not.  HOWEVER, everyone I know (East Penn Traction Club) who does large scale trolley is in Half-Inch scale, which is 1:24!

Other traction suppliers in Large Scale are all 1:24. 

Now what should Bachmann do?

The NMRA DCC standard specified that a decoder should allow the option to run on DC or not.  I have not seen a decoder that did not provide for this.

You set a bit in CV29 to allow DC operation.  If you do not select it, the decoder will not run on DC.

HEY!  Does a trolley museum count in this survey?

I am deeply involved with the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton, Pa.  (Located on Steamtown's grounds!)  I try to get there once a month to operate the trolley excursion.  If you like trolleys AND trains, this is the place.  You can get photographs of a trolley and train together at the platform.  Be sure to take a trolley ride.  It is a 10.5 MILE round trip, including a tunnel of over 4700 feet.

I am also a conductor and engineer trainee on the Cape May Seashore Lines in south Jersey.  While not really a museum, we do operate historic equipment such as, Budd RDC's that ran on this line from 1950 until 1981.  You can have a 30 mile round trip every Saturday from Tuckahoe to Richland.
