HOn30" Mining RR page.

This layout was featured in the November/December 2003 Narrow Gauge & Short Line Gazette.

The layout is 11" X 12 1/2" (28cm X 32cm). The train is an old AHM HOn30" mine train which was purchased used. I found the locomotive ran very poorly so I removed the plastic shell and put it on a Bachmann N-scale 0-4-0T chassis. The couplers were not flexible enough to allow the train to go around the railroad's 5" (13cm) curves and were replaced with little loops and hooks made from brass wire.

Someone in Australia has made a very nice On18 version of this layout.
