Dear All,
Our Director of Product Development, Mr. H. Lee Riley, was honored at the Narrow Gauge Convention. He has been inducted into the Narrow Gauge Hall of Fame, an honor that I think is very well deserved!
Congratulations, Lee!

Would you please pass along the congratulations of all the members of the Saskatoon Railroad Modellers group?  We have all been able to get into Narrow Gauge Railroading, first in large scale and now in 0n30, thanks to the wonderful and affordable products from Bachmann.  Thank you Mr. Riley for the large part you have played in making these products available.

Tell Mr. Riley congratulations, and a big thank you from me also for all the wonderful products.  I am a "lone engineer", high up in the mountains of Colorful Colorado.

Here in the rugged mountains, we definitely have a history of narrow gauge.

Ah ha! I knew there was someone to blame for my getting into narrow gauge. Thanks Mr. Riley.

Add my congratulations!

I got back into model railways (railroads to you in America) as a result of Bachman's ON30 line. I had been contemplating a train but really wanted narrow gauge (blame my being a boy in Melbourne, Australia and being  taken for rides on the preserved 30 inch gauge "Puffing Billy" for birthdays and other special occasions). I was put off by the expense and/or necessity to bash and scratch build until Bachmann ON30 appeared - the perfect and affordable solution for easy narrow gauge. As Mr Riley ws responsible for the ON30 range, it is because of him I returned to the hobby.

Congrats to Lee!  He and I go WAY back to the old Pro Custom Hobbies days in Catonsville.  Well deserved.  The Bachmann line has probably netted us more narrow gaugers in the last 10 years than in the previous quarter-century.

I'm new to this board and new to "O" guage trains.  I bought a Williams (I think 464) engine and tender.   In the back of the engine is a knob that can be turned.  What does that knob do?  Sorry to be so ignorant, but I am, lol.

Just so you know, a single person from Bachmann was admitted into the hall of fame, not the Bachmann company itself.

^Also, sozos, this is not the place for a question like that, you would be better off posting that in the O scale board.


And send my congratulations to Mr. Riley as well.

I'm pretty sure I remember seeing your face on Mr. Riley's 153rd birthday?

Did I say 1855? I meant 1833. I thought someone would catch it... Wink
