    I'm resurrecting this 2014 thread to offer a few observations about applying the Smallbrook Studios conversion kit to make Emily into a proper locomotive, a model of the Stirling Single. (Yes, I know it should be gauge-3 as it is standard gauge, but you c...  more
    45 tonner gets some upgrades
    They make great bashing fodder as well as good runners out of the box.
    I kept one stock (more or less) and completely bashed two: one into a standard gauge box cab and another into a calf.
    I want to get another one for bashing up into 7/8 scale.
    45 tonner gets some upgrades

    The Bachmann GE 45 Tonner is sort of the same idea.
     
    Yes, I noticed that when I saw one for sale a couple of days ago. I know you can easily get the wheels off - Clem converted one to standard gauge (70mm). I bet the sideframes are cosmetic.

    O Standard gauge maybe, but my plans for On3 outdoors died when I saw the grains of sand stuck to the rails after a rain...  on code 70 rails.... boulders they were.
    Dual gauge Turnout Build

    I model in F Scale so the gauges are 70.6mm for standard gauge and 45mm for 3 ft narrow gauge.
     
    Here's the answer as to what gauge Stan uses.  Page 1.
    Dual gauge Turnout Build
    I thought Stan had answered but he has elsewhere here it is 
    "The railroad is 3 foot narrow gauge on 45 mm track which is 1:20.32 or Fn3.
