Although toys, with a little work these might work. 

Wheels are the problem. 

Again, I think they are a bit large for HO. 

Regards, Dave L.

Thanks, Michael, for the link.

I was not aware they were available.

I will check them out.

Health problems prevent my continuing work in HOn30,
until some time in the future.

Best regards to all!

Thanks, Peter. 

I've loved HOn30 for almost fifty years. 

Regards, Dave

Fifty years ago I made some HOn30 passenger cars,
by cutting down HO scale Overton coaches. 

I found this photo of one of the Overtons,
and one of the Mini-trainS coaches of today, side by side. 

I had to cut the roof, body, and underframe, down the middle,
and take a little off each half. 

Glued back together it made a fairly credible narrow gauge car. 
Grandt Line had trucks to put under the new bodies.

As I remember I had a three car set, combine and two coaches. 
I never did find a good running little steamer to pull them. 

N scale was just beginning, and good running steam mechanisms,
did not exist (that I could afford). 

I wish I had kept those cars today. 

Regards, Dave L.

I've just discovered a new supplier on Ebay.

He has a line of HOn30 3D-printed cars and kits,
for converting N-scale engines to HOn30.

His prices are very reasonable ($15 or less) and shipping is free.
Search 'HOn30" and his stuff will come up.

Here is my kit for converting a Bachmann 0-6-0

Regards, Dave L.

Dave,

Interested in seeing your progress.

Is the Bachmann 0-6-0 a decent runner ?
