I have been looking for additional HOn30 engines for awhile and decided to see just what the "new" Minitrains looked like and to see how they ran.  I bought a few last week and got them really quick.  They ran very good out of the box and you can see them in the following pictures.  I have a few additional engines and rolling stock on order and will post pictures of them as they arrive.

I discovered Allied Model Trains has pictures and prices of what looks like the complete Minitrains line although a lot are currently out of stock.  You can buy them a few other places but this is the only complete photo and price listing I have found.

This is my HOn30 Sugiyama Heisler next to one of the Minitrains 0-4-0's to compare the size of the two engines.  You can find additional pictures of the HOn30 Heisler at this link:

Just came across a posting for minitrain, they are shipping WW1 ALCO 2-6-2Ts in a couple of styles, short & long roof. Maybe of interest to you. Along with the Bachmann Europe Baldwin 4-6-0T & a box and gondola(no due date yet).
Minitrains also has 3 freight and a caboose listed.

Hi Ken,

I knew about the HOn30 Minitrains 2-6-0T and have two on order but I don't know anything for sure about the Bachmann 4-6-0T or rolling stock.

Thanks, I will check on the Baldwin items.

I have gathered a nice "fleet" of HOn30 engines and rolling that I need to start a thread for.

Ken,

Where did you see the posting. I'd like to see what they look like. Interesting.

Hi,

The HOn30 yahoo group has pictures of the two cab versions and two different paint jobs for four different paint/cab combinations of this new engine.

groups.yahoo.com/group/HOn30

Look in the albums for one called "Minitrains 2-6-2"

I have two each of the light gray color and long cab versions of this new 2-6-2T on order.

The freight cars look like WWI "trench" rolling stock so I am mostly making my own rolling stock.  I do have the red cabooses which are like US Narrow Gauge.
