    I applaud Bachman's efforts in introducing, & continuing improvements in its line of narrow gauge O scale.

    "guys this is from the Bachmann site and is still a work(TEMPTATION) in progress"

    Help! I'm falling and I can't find my will power!

    Hmmm, I wonder if I could do a reasonably good looking switchback in On30, in a 2' X 12' space?

    You N scalers call HO horribly oversized, O must stand for
    "O-ma-gawd that's huge"!

    I can't do this, I've never built a tree in O scale!

    Catt,
    That really is a neat lookin' little sidewinder.

    Catt,
    In HO scale, it's modelbuilding. In O scale, it's carpentry! I did build the IHC O scale Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0 kit, and I'm doing a 1/32 scale schooner, so I guess I could dabble in On30. (like I really need another project) It is tempting.

    Shamus,
    Thanks for the plans,I'll have to give them serious consideration for O scale, but I could still use the idea for HO. I have three modules left from my old 8'X10' modular layout, and I have been considering making them into a switchback scene once all the buildings have been moved to the new module set.

    Tyson,
    "Get cracking!!????" I am cracking, under the strain of Catt's tempting me with all the shay info!
    On the other hand, the change of scale might be refreshing, hmmmmm, never say never.
