The Fish Head Glue Co. has only one piece of rolling stock that can "comfortably" carry folks. 

It started as a Bachmann On30 passenger car and uses a modified chassis and roof. 

No scenic tours of the facility are planned, but sometimes a few folks must be transported.

Regards, Dave L.

Hey Dave, did you use HO passenger car trucks under this car?

I still haven't ordered benches for a passenger car or two of my own, need to get cracken.

I don't see how you attached the trucks to the car.

Larry, those are the trucks that came on the On30 car.

As I recollect they snap into the chassis.

I think Bachmann uses screws to attach the trucks now; replacement trucks I have on hand are screwed into a chassis.

I checked the trucks I have and they have a post that comes up through the chassis and a screw from the top holds them on.

While recovering from health issues, and with work on the new Charles Fish Head Glue Co. layout on hold,
I thought I would share some things on my project list. 

Here is the beginning of a small string of ore cars, based on Bachmann ore cars. 
I've removed the small details and painted with "Flat Gull Gray" paint by Model Master. 
I have four of the little cars as of now, but hope to find more at a train show. 

Thanks for looking,

regards, Dave L.

Dave, get well soon so you can enjoy what makes you happy - Gn15.

The Bachmann cars will make into a fine train.

Thanks, Larry.

One of the great things about Gn15 is the adaptability of inexpensive HO equipment.

I find cheap, used HO stuff at train shows to use in my projects.

Regards, Dave L.

I am always looking for bits and pieces to use with my Gn15 models. 
Any used up piece of equipment like old phones, small appliances, and electronic stuff,
when taken apart, will yield all sorts of useful little bits. 

A case in point was the neat "plumbing" parts for a future factory procured after my visit to the hospital. 
The nurses were amused with my request to keep all the IV parts,
but they will be part of the detail in my glue factory. 

Keep looking for useful stuff! 

Regards, Dave L.
