30 sounded like you were getting more for your money than 2 1/2.

They found out that 30 inch is the same as 2 1/2 foot

NO S**T!!!! Technology leaps forward all the time!. Jose

Last night I took 505 for a spin around the layout. i had to raise the uncoupling wires just a bit to clear some turnouts, but otherwise she rolled great...

I'm in On30 because Bachmann made the prototype locomotives I always wanted in that scale, at a price I could afford. I must admit I'd have gone On3 if someone had done this stuff in that gauge instead.

I finished the ‘timetables’ for the layout today, though they really have more operating instructions than anything else:

The backs have a bunch of patriotic slogans as you’d find in any document from the mid-WW2 era.
