" Si, that old Tri-ang HO stuff was so chunky and klunky that it seems to pass for 1:35 "

Howdy Woodie :cb:

Just pulled out HALs charger-plug... 'normal' service is now resumed.
If Herb had a HAL 9000 on his wall...
...I guess by now it would have a .380 hole in the lens !!

Woodie, quite a few '60s Tri-ang parts are working really well here for 1:35n2
Their trucks for my car scratchbuilds, are looking just 'right'.
The big riveted-tanks in HO, look like clunky-funky size in 1:35
With the odd new brake-wheel, decking & couplers; the ore-cars will be great as well.

The best part about mixing scratchbuilding with 'bashed' Tri-ang is...
...IT'S FUN !!

Some of the more unusual Tri-ang items can cost a quid or two...
...but mostly, I'm picking up fantastically made diecast pieces, for peanuts !!
If it's 'mint' or 'boxed', is no concern for M.M.M



I just have to avoid the 'silly' stuff !!
I do like it though !!
Your wallet might EXPLODE ! if you want to buy one of these.
Still cheaper than Bachmann in the U.K though.

Shipment of HAL 9000 computers SABOTAGED on the way to Mysterious Moose Mountain.
