Thank you Peter. The rail trucks have only had the actual bevel gears in the difs replaced with the fresh ones Bachmann supplied as a freebie a year or so ago.  The ones for the gearbox end where the drive shaft leaves the motor were also included as were the universal joints but those have not needed replacement on my four rail trucks and reside in the spares box against future disasters!

All the rail trucks have run fine since that job was done and it was pretty simple to complete.

Thanks Si. I guessed you'd recognise the engineers' names. They bring sunshine to Updah!

Hi Doug :wave:



Haven't said hello over here in a while.

So I thought I'd pester you with a dims. question.

I know you're good at those ! :bg:



I don't suppose you have a Bachmann On30 tankcar by any chance Doug ?

If you do, what dia. is the tank ? & how long is the tank ?



Just in case Doug doesn't have one of those ...

... if anyone else has those sizes, I'd be most grateful to know them.



Cheers.



:moose:



Si.



P.S. Found a great T-shirt for the Updah music festival the other day.

Perfect for scaring the tourists ! :shocked:



;)

Hi Si. Not strictly a Bachmann tank car as sold by them but a shorter car made up of Bachmann parts.

001 by slateworks, on Flickr

The tank is an original Bachmann part and is 127mm long and 32.5mm diameter ignoring dome, grab handles and the other "trimmings".

Hope this helps.

Do show the T-shirt!

Hi Doug & Ken :wave:



Thanks for the dimensions. :)

I kinda figured it was about the same length & a bit fatter than my HO Tyco BASHED one.

Guess what ? ... It is !

Good to know something a bit more certain about it. ???



They are pretty darn rare & not at all cheap in Blightey. :f:

( this is where Doug annoyingly tells me he bought 1/2 a dozen for £0.50p ! ) ;)

But I have had my beady lil' eyes on getting one for a while now.

Perhaps the last 'victim' for the diverse M.M.M tankcar BASH fleet.



My take would be a Woodie type woody underframe for 1:35 ...

... Tri-ang modded trucks ...

... plus I get the Bachmann archbars, which are good for my railtrucks.

Can't argue with that guvnor ! :thumb:



Doug & W.C.G, your tankcars are both great inspiration as well.

Interestingly both much shortened from the originals.

I think shortening makes sense for M.M.M as well.

My Tyco one looks good like that.



Anyway cheers guys !

Not the bargain of the year, but it's gonna be a nice addition to my oil business. :cb:

Si.



Tourist scaring 'T' ...





:shocked:
