These are terrific, as well as the layout or diorama they are photographed on. Any more photos of it?

Junior,
Thanks for sharing your build of #3. It is inspiring how you are able to pull all of these parts from the junk box together into such fine locomotives.

Hey Geezer,
When I order Spud or Tenshodo units I get from http://www.pepper7.com/ look for the chassis button. I have had good luck. Also consider the black beetle units as alternative.

Junior,

Thank you for sharing! I really enjoy this.

Les, that source seems to be in the UK, is there any American source we could get the spud or black beetle from?

Thanks,

Arthur

Well for any one in Canada I picked one up at Niagara Central Hobbies in the summer and they had a few others. You would have to call them and ask if they have them still. They were in the ON30 display case on the main floor behind the HO brass.

BTW, if you are ever in Niagara Falls it is worth a 20 minute drive to visit this store. It has been there forever and is two stories, they take trade in stuff so you just never know what they will have. Ton's of repair parts real old time train store. Serve Coffee and Donuts and have a small area to sit and chat with other modelers.
Legal disclaimer:
No I live in NC so I do not have any ties to the store.

I agree with this. I never thought about this. Such a talented approach; talk about real kitbashing. This certainly makes it accessible to most of us.

Hi Guys,

Thank you so much.
Following pictures show the combination of a SPUD WB-26 (26 stands wheelbase - 26mm), Tenshodo 14mm (about 9/16") dia. wheelsets and On2 Sandy River passenger car trucks.

And SPUD WB-24.5 is suitable for Bachmann short wheelbase archbar truck.

Ooops! A picture is broken. Sorry.



Well, the late Masaharu Kimura built On30 many streetcars, a flat bed motor and two steeplecab electrics, one for him and one for my freiend.
I think he was the real craftman.
Here are some pictures of his flatbed motor and steeplecabs.

Junior,
This thread just gets better and better. I may just have to electrify part of the fleet.
Is # 7 riding on a spud with Bachmann passenger trucks?
Please keep adding pictures if you have them.

I agree! I'm already going to electrify part of my line. I'm totally hooked on this. More pictures please.

Thanks Larry and Arthur.

Steeplecab Nos. 6 and 7 ride on Japanese_made 1:80 scale Baldwin-type trucks.
Each steeplecab is powered by a SPUD WB-31.
If you use Bachmann passenger car trucks, you have to use SPUD WB-28.7.
Following pictures are Hisao Sugiyama's box motor (Bachmann baggage car plus Bowser trolley fronts).
This is equipped with a SPUD WB-28.7.
