      Hi jason,

      i am currently working on one of these currently, just wondering what you used for step and handrails on side? Did you use off the shelf items or custom made?

      regards Iain

    • Joe, tell me the range (models) of locos you would accept, and I will put the feelers out. I know a guy .....

      would be pretty hard to find a good steamer for that range, but $200 diesels do come up...

    • Thank you Greg. The photo is just for reference purposes. I'm not actually looking for a GP40, nor could I actually find one in my price range (if one were even available).

    • I'll take four at that price!

       

      You did not say explicitly, but that is a GP40, right? Those are scarce as hen's teeth, and the first batch of Aristo GP40's had bad motors.

       

      Best of luck!

    • Looking for a Chessie loco of good condition in the $150 to $200 dollar range.

      Prefer it to be diesel, but may consider steam. 

       

      Let me know if you have one you could part with.

      Thank you.

    • Thanks' Pete :

      Didn't think about Bachmann. ( srmoment ) Those wheels will work great.They're almost the same size as the ones on my rail truck thats on my profile picture . I don't know how I sent that picture either. Always an adventure when I'm on the computer.

      Thank's again

    • (I don't know how you got that picture up to 7.3Meg.)  Anyway, it looks like the same wheels as the pilot truck on a 4-6-0 Big Hauler ?

       

      Bachmann's Parts store has wheels that look like the handcar, not the trailer, tho it claims they are for both.
      https://estore.bachmanntrains.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=69_144&products_id=561&zenid=9038jiktb52b43mbqgdhoeas32

       

      Interestingly, in the same list of parts, there is a "Wheels-Solid Black (Large Scale - Handcar & Trailer) $6.80 Could be used as pilot wheels in G:4-6-0, G:2-6-0" Although they are sold out, as usual. Confirms my suspicion that the pilot wheels are similar if not the same.

      Here's the nearest thing to the 4-6-0 pilot wheels I could find on Bachmann's website:

       

      Ah - George Schreyer to the rescue:

       

      I don't have one handy but I bet those are close to the wheels you are looking for.

    • Morning everyone :

      I'm hoping you guys can help me find this size spoked wheel . It's on the Bachmann hand car and they're about 25 m.m.  I'd be willing to buy an old broken hand car for a fair price if anyone had one they wanted to get rid of. I need them to build a trailer for my rail truck.

      Thank's for any help Guys

      If all goes well my etching designs I won't need to cut any. But yes this was one factor among many.

      I have the older version which I have been very pleased with for many years (at least 10). Yes, it will cut brass to about 1/16th, and wood up to the blade thickness. My trick is to get a selection of blades - 120 tooth for metals, 80 tooth for plastic and 20 tooth rip blade for wood.  I also have the extended fence and lots of the zero-clearance blade thingies, plus the fingers for holding fragile items.

       

      I cut plywood for carrying boxes and 2" plastic tube (hold it against the fence and spin it slowly in the blade.) Brass strip not problem, and I even cut aluminum sheet once for coach floors.

    • Al,

      Everything I've read seems to indicate that these saws are very well made. I almost never pick up a hobby knife anymore as I have found a mini saw to work a lot better. This new one should improve work flow a lot more!
