Hi:

Has anyone mounted standard gauge trucks under the Bachmann J&S coaches?
Trucks used?

Norman






No, but I happen to have a Bachmann On30 coach, a standard gauge caboose (for reference, I will place the caboose behind the coach)

and a short section of 32mm "standard gauge profile" track..
I will take some photos tomorrow, and photoshop out the truck sideframes to standard gauge..see what it looks like.

Hi Scott:

Referencing the standard gauge caboose, I guess the narrow gauge coaches are too small to use as standard gauge coaches?

Yup.

BTW - On30 does not need to be changed to 0 scale, it IS 0 scale. Just 'narrow gauge' [2ft 6in] instead of standard gauge [4ft 8.5in].

Norman,
I used the standard gauge caboose simply because it was handy!
and to have a "real" standard gauge car as a reference for the Bachmann combine..

as for " narrow gauge coaches are too small to use as standard gauge coaches?"..the answer is "yes and no"!
most of the time, they would probably look too small..but prototypes come in all sizes and shapes..
im sure a bachmann On30 caboose could be converted to standard gauge, and simply represent a very small standard gauge caboose..
which probably existed, somewhere, in real life..

the original poster of this thread is intending to use the Bachmann On30 rolling stock to represent a small mining railroad in Norway..which was Standard Gauge, but very small locomotives and equipment..so in that case, the On30 locos and rolling stock "fit"..
For American standard gauge, 99% of the time, the On30 cars will be "too small" to realistically represent standard gauge cars..but not 100% of the time..

Scot
