the only thing i would keep in mind is the different couplers though.

The g scale cars  I recieved each came witha set of replacement Knuckle couplers and a set of coupler adapter blocks to lower the height to the bighauler coupler height.


i never got any. Sad

The only downside I see is the buffers and the four wheel trucks.  I suspect the buffers can be removes and many mine cars did have four wheel trucks.

The bottom line is that it is your railroad and you should do what feels right or looks right to you.  The main thing is to have fun and enjoy your trains. 

The 985XX wood ore cares would look good as well, even the 957xx series 20 foot gondolas, It would be easy to make your own coal loads for them.

Again have fun!!!
this is true. its your railroad, so do what you want. the only thing i would keep in mind is the different couplers though. Wink

A well detailed Spectrum small diesel would be nice too
Something like a G version of the HO Plymouth 6-wheeler?
Which although labeled an MDT is actually a WDT - MDT were 4 wheel. See:
or, maybe even a BIG diesel like a GP or SD something.  Wink

but will barely move in the sunny, warm (70o) weather. How 'bout that!

Hint:  the headlight current is supplied by the pony truck ONLY!  Perhaps when you disassembled/re-assembled, you put the truck or wheels in backwards.  Worth a try...


i made sure of that befor i put it back together
because it would short it out.  and the wire that goes between the engine and the tender is for the headlight. and theres only one wire on the pony truck

Congrats, RBMN!

Glad it was a simple fix.

12  Discussion Boards / HO / F40PH- New or Old on: September 25, 2010, 08:53:01 AM
if on the parts and service Tab, the parts for the f40ph are listed as older model, does that mean they're going to come out with a newer model?
