Hey everyone im new to the Fourms and i was wondering if anyone knows any websites for Chassis that are HO/OO scale because i want to convert an old Bachmann Clarabel of Mine to have a workign Chassis any ideas ohh and also what paint color was used on the Annie and Clarabel Models

and its going to be a long time before i have a complete layout and im restaring again since most of my old trains were stolen and badly damaged but with what i got left im going to start again

let me know i am having a hard time finding a site since googles is being a jerk to me

well,
your best bet is ebay, but your better off buying an old engine and taking the shell off,  ... OR....
if there a train show in town, your netter off going there since you get decent prices, and you save yourself shipping and handling.
plus the people who sell at train shows are often very knowlegable
and might give you some nice pointers....and maybe a discount... Grin

Well Bachmann is your spot for American models. But you might want to look around your area for cheap hobby dealers, buying from the manufactuer isn't always the best way.

i know what you mean i found companys near by mainly across the border that offer the Bachmann products for cheap prices and ebay is probably where i will get most of my stuff for my layout if i ever get around to it
