This is the HO one -

This is the On30 one -
Is it HO or the larger On30? Bachmann made Norman Rockwell trains in different sizes and the locos attach differently. The box should say what size it is.

Wooglin - Just a "heads up" here. I can't speak to the combos you are trying in AnyRail but I have had issues a few times with Anyrail being off when I was trying different layouts with it using E-Z Track. Things just didn't fit together like Anyrail said they would. I don't know if that's the case with your situation.

I'm assuming you have the "A" end connected to the "A" end and the "B" end connected to the "B" end?

I had it back in February also. With me being on oxygen 24/7, my lungs aren't in very good shape.

Last month I was in the hospital for two weeks with double pneumonia and a bacterial infection in my stomach. It was second time this year I was in there for pneumonia. My health just isn't up for a move.

No offense to anyone but I have no desire to live in Philly or anywhere near the East or West Coast. :)

I'm happy to hear that Bach-Man. I got to wondering. :)

I couldn't do it now. I have too many health issues.

Boy! I sure wish I was younger. The media coordinator job would be right up my alley. Maybe I should say right up my spur :) A media person for a model train company. Wow! :)
I have BA in media communications with emphasis in public communications. Too bad this wasn't around in 1990 when I graduated.
Now, I'm too old and too infirm to even think about it.

In looking at Pic 1 - A bobber caboose is about 3" long. The other cars look to be about the same so that is 9". The loco is about 3 3/4" long. That would be 12 3/4". If you were to straighten the train out across the diameter, you could maybe fit two more 3" cars. If that was the case, that would be 18 3/4" diameter. Just a guesstimate..
On30 / On30 tenders

Are any of the On30 tenders the same body as the On30 Mogul tender? I need a Mogul tender body for a kit bash. I don't need a whole tender just the body. If not, I guess I'll have to buy a whole tender.

I don't know if it was a part of the public or private land it was on. I made sure we were beyond the National Historic Site boundary before I messed with anything. I know it's a no-no inside National Park and Historic sites.
If I find an old license plate from 1959 on the shoulder of a Federal Interstate or say an old beer can from the 60's, it's against the law for me to to pick it up?
So how is it you can run a DC loco using the #10 button on E-Z Command? I've done it and not fried any motors.
