Size/scale of J&S kits

(1/2) > >>

Sbegnaud:
I was recently at my LHS looking at the J&s coach kits.  I didn't have them out of the box, but holding the box next to the prebuilt big hauler coach, it looked like the kit version was shorter.  Are the kits a different scale than the Pre-built? Maybe 1:24? Or was it just my eyes.

Steve

Jon D. Miller:
Kits and pre-build J&S coaches are the same size.  They a 1:22.5 scale.

JD

mickeykelley:
I just assumed these would be 1:20 and was getting ready to order but now I'm rethinking. Besides the various spectrum engines, what cars are 1:20?

ScottyB:
I believe everything in the Spectrum line is 1:20.3.  Everything in the Big Hauler line is (roughly) 1:22.5.

Loco Bill Canelos:
Hi,  There are some 1:20.3 items that are not Spectrum such as the Davenport, and the newest Lyn.

To me the Bachmann J&S coaches look fine behind  some 1:20.3 locos  like the 4-4-0 , 2-6-0.

Here is a list of most of the 1:20.3 Bachmann items,  I need to update this so no guarantees of accuracy!!!
