Mr. Bachmann; I am still patiently awaiting the release of the N and HO Scale Bachmann Statues for my train table. Could you update us on the status of this project that we asked about a few years ago. Thank you, Bill    Cry

Derricks and boom cars  were often found sitting on a MOW siding until called for a recovery operation. On the line, they would be an engine, some support cars (box, flats, gonds.) boom and derrick. Several of the Morning Sun Publisher's books have a few pics of wreck trains.

I need some imput from someone who is familiar with the HO Bachmann 0-4-0's: I been considering building N scale Pennsy P-5a Box cab(s) from the chassis--the drivers and axel spacing are a close enough match with a ruler (didn't have access to calipers at the time)! But in regards to reguaging--when I cut the length of the chassis--is it metal or plastic (or both available from different production runs?)? Are the axels single or two piece? How thick would the flanges be Etc.

These are different shank lengths.
If one has large radii curves, one can use the shorter shanks. It will keep the cars closer together. If you are going to run through smaller, tighter curves -- the use the longer shanks. Most of the hobby shops will have a microtrains notebook with the diminsions and a complete conversion chart, or you can get the info from their website as well.

I highly recomend MT's coupler tweesers!
