Bachmann On30 "shorty" ore car

This is one of the new Bachmann On30 "shorty" ore or coal cars. This is the actual car that appeared in the Bachmann ads. I took the raw plastic car and painted and weathered it. There's a plastic coal load sold with the car. It's a nice car, tracks well and has a lot of detail. 

For you On30 2-foot fans - look at the Vulcan trucks. They are dead ringers for the SR&RL trucks - the only thing you have to do to make them perfect is to cut off the spring cover that extends above the truck frame in the middle of the truck.

  1. Hi Dave,
    Talking about On30, several years ago you published a photo of Thatcher's Inlet on Bob Hayden's On30 Elk River Line.
    Any chance of publishing any more photos ? maybe even a track plan or layout description ?.
