    I know that you can buy shells for normal diesel engines that come unpainted and such, but does anyone know if any company makes shells for bullet trains? I have Bachman, life like, model power, and even some tyco engines. The reason I ask is, most of the trains I see are N scale Kato, and Tomix trains, and I just can't seem to find anything in HO scale. If anyone can steer me in the right direction, I would be very greatful. Or, if anyone knows of anywhere to get HO scale bullet trains period. Thanks.

    the only decent HO scale bullet train that i know of is the Bachmann/Tenshodo Shinkansen Nozomi series 500 that just came out recently. i had one but i sold it about a month ago. i am pretty sure that they can still be found, but they are very expensive. i think the retail price for the set is 600.00, but you can buy them for around 400 or a little bit less at most places. i got mine from www.caboosehobbies.com

    Someone, it may be Bachmann makes the French TGV, but I don't know how good it is or if it is just a toy.
