    On30? Anyone?

    Glad to see another narrow-minded individual around! ;) Welcome to the dark side! I model in On30 as well; logging out east, mostly. Cheers, -Chris

    Atlas turnouts

    Huh, that's weird. My switches on my layout have the atlas dead frogs and I run my sound engines over them all the time- no problem!:confused: That's kinda weird. Maybe it's just something with the C83 ones? I kind of like their turnouts. I just remove the machines and saw off the lugs...

    where are the On30 guys...?

    Does it look like they could easily stand in for an O-scale one if some parts were enlarged? Cheers, -Chris

    Yeah, don't I know it! It's in my garage, so I didn't have a whole lot to work with....:mad::rolleyes: I just poured the water into the pond this morning. Starting to take shape... Cheers, -Chris

    Hey rob, its Chris. I got your 'friends' request. It won't let me put you on my list though (the forum I mean). I'll try again later, though. There's a thread in the O scale section about On30 stuff that I put up; it has some pics of my layout on it if you want to check it out. later, -Chris
