Touching on an earlier theme, Mason Bogies are very nice engines but in practice they suffer the same problem many of us have with the Forneys.

Forneys are nice engines, but many of us On30 folk find that we lack the space to give them curvature to do them justice. That's why some On30 modelers saw off the backs of their Forneys, build small tenders to go with them, and turn their Forneys into tender engines.

Mason bogies have the same problem, only more pronounced. If a Forney would be happier with 24 to 26 inch curves instead of the 22 inch curves which many of us modular modelers possess, a Mason bogie would prefer something like a thirty to thirty two-inch radius curve.

In an ideal world, tight curves would be limited to sports cars and pretty girls. Alas, even in model railroading, it's a  less-than-perfect world.

I'd like a tank engine bigger than the Porters, smaller than the 2-8-0, and capable of tackling an 18 inch radius curve without derailing.

That's why I created this topic. To give Bachmann inspiration for new products. Whether they'll do it or not, time will tell.

     What are you kids thinking. I left HO to get away from Diesels. Please Bachmann, don't waste your efforts on Dieselizing On30.

      Enjoy,
         Barry

That's why I'm interested in On30.  Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin

You didn't have to leave HO "to get away from diesels". There are many steam loco's in HO. Admit it, you just like ON-30 better cause ON-30 is FUNNER!

superthomasfan
have you nothing better to do than keep starting new topics on the on30 board . you post way too many links for allsorts of things that bachmann wont make. i think you would be better off on the thomas board as your name suggests. by the way you are not the only annoying poster on the on30 board.

Please don't criticise me. Cry
Just because I'm called superthomas fan, doesn't mean I have to do a Thomas layout. I gave up that concept long ago.

Do you think  Bachmann would be able to make an engine model like this?

Would it be possible for Bachmann to make 2-4-0s?

Like these, for example:
