see buy and sell thread shamus is puting his ho"s up for sale going On3 rich
It's on the cards that it may be just on the way out.
Shamus,scratch the 0n3 and do 0n30.
Not going On3, going On30 .
If you're going to do that Shamus, you should hang on to at least some of your HO equipment...(those wonderful geared locos)...I know someone with your skills could easily convert them to the larger scale!
Looks like that tall timber will have to get a little taller though!
"EGADS! AND LITTLE FISHES"!!!!
But......Our loss and our gain too... The best is just going to get better!!!!!
I can undertand the lure of On30. There's some really nice looking equipment out, but the scale/gauge is stilll a scratchbuilder's delight. And then - at least for me - there's the issue of eyesight and aging. Sometimes I think switching to a larger scale is what I need to do also.
Sn3 and On30... the stuff looks pretty darned good.
Are you familiar with Backwoods Miniatures?
I believe they are located in the UK. They make several On30 kits...they have a website, but I don't have the address in front of me...maybe try a google search...they're a little pricey for my budget.
Nevermind...I found it...
Hi Charlie, thanks for reminding me of it, here's the link
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't it just this past January you started this layout?! What am I doing wrong?
Where I've already purchased some On30 equipment, I can understand why you might want to change scales and start over. We all need a little change at times. I'm going to miss the spectacular scenes of the Badger Creek, but look forward to seeing your work in O scale.
Changed Your Mind?
Shamus, I noticed that your "ad" in the Buy/Sell forum has been pulled. Did you change your mind about selling your HO stuff? Or have you already sold it all?
Not sold it at all, in fact having had a good think about it and getting FLAK from the wife, thought better of of it. So the Badger Creek stays.
What I shall do very soon is to have a small layout around 8' by 2' for the On30 and keep this in the spare bedroom. When I have got enough BROWNIE points with the wife.
A wise decision I think Keep "racking up" those points
