RE: On30 outdoors???
Actually, I was probably 5 or 6 when I first started playing with my brother's trains. :-)
I've been interested in the On30 stuff since it first came out, I actually have more of that than I do of G scale stuff. I'm a "narrow gauge nut". I really don't have very much G scale stuff, I didn't have any place to put it for a long time. Lately, I've been converting all my San Juan D&RG On3 trucks to On30. I decided that I didn't want to spend the extra money on On3 track. I had replaced most of the Bachmann trucks on my rolling stock with the San Juan trucks before they offered the trucks in On30, so I had been putting NWSL wheelsets on them for On30. I only did a few like that before I ended up having to put it all aside for a while. Now I'm pulling the wheels off of the older Bachmann wheelsets and putting them on longer axles for the San Juan trucks. They're better than the plastic wheels that the San Juan trucks come with. 1/16th inch stainless steel rod from K & S Engineering is just about perfect for axles for the older style Bachmann wheels. The newer wheelsets seem to have a slightly larger diameter axle where it goes through the wheel. The insulated wheel is easy to put on the new axle, the non-insulated one requires reaming out the hole with a 1/16th drill bit, then you get a slight press fit on the axle, just enough to keep the wheel from moving on the axle.
I sit and do this stuff at night instead of watching TV, although the computer does get distracting. :-)
